RMIT’s AFI Research Collection is pleased to announce the 2023/2024 AFI Research Collection Fellowship.
Applications are now open
The AFIRC invites proposals that showcase the unique holdings and promotes the AFIRC through a published or non-traditional research output.
We welcome scholars who think critically about archival representation to recognize where there are gaps or inequities in scholarship. The AFIRC encourages proposals from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) candidates, Diverse Genders, Sexes and Sexualities (DGSS), precariously employed and/or people living with disabilities who can contribute to our charge for diversity as we strive to grow a vitally inclusive research culture.
Research projects might include:
- Scholarly articles or monographs
- Creative work
- Digital project
- Performance-based research
- Exhibition proposals
- Research-based syllabi to grow student research
- Collaborative research
The appointed Fellow will have access to the Collection under the guidance of the AFIRC staff.
The Fellowship will provide a stipend of $5000 (AUD) which includes travel costs if the recipient is not from Melbourne.
The Fellow will be required to participate in an accessible public event that engages on a topic related to their work. This could be in the form of an informal In-Conversation, or a panel style event and will be facilitated by RMIT Culture.
When considering your Fellowship proposal, please take time to look over the AFIRC holdings via the online catalogue, to understand the strengths and limitations of the collection. Applicants are also strongly encouraged to review past winners for tips on the scope of projects, previous topics and examples of collection-centered research.
Application guidelines and information about the AFIRC holdings may be found online. All questions about the fellowship program and / or the application process should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Application deadline: 11.55pm Sunday September 17th 2023
