CCG congratulates Michele Lobo on her Vice-Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Contribution to Research
CCG's Dr Michele Lobo was recently awarded the Vice Chancellor's Early Career Award for Research Excellence. As part of this award, Dr Lobo will receive a $5000 grant to contribute to the costs of her research.
Dr Lobo is currently working on two Australian Research Council Discovery Projects. Her project 'Shared Belonging in Australia: Public Space and Intercultural Relations in Suburban Darwin', is funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) which began this year. The project focuses on the sensory nature of everyday encounters in public spaces and privileges insights from Indigenous peoples and racialised settlers. Her second project 'Islamic Religiosity and the Challenges of Political Engagement and National Belonging in Multicultural Western Cities' (with Alfred Deakin Prof. Fethi Mansouri and Professor Bryan Turner) examines Islamic rituals and faith-based cultural activities among Muslims in Melbourne, Paris and Detroit.
