Deakin University is currently inviting exceptional candidates to apply for a PhD scholarship in the Centre for Citizenship and Globalisation (CCG). The Centre focuses on how Australia engages with the region and the world to value diversity, unsettle exclusionary politics and contribute to transformative governance. Further information about the University and CCG can be found at http://www.deakin.edu.au/arts-ed/ccg/.
The PhD project is to be undertaken in conjunction with the Australian Research Council (ARC) project, 'Shared Belonging in Australia: Public Space and Intercultural Relations in Suburban Darwin'. The ARC project explores the emergence of intercultural spaces of shared belonging in Australian suburbia through a focus on the material and sensory dimension of public spaces. The PhD project is defined openly at this stage and students will have the opportunity to develop their own interests in the interdisciplinary area of social and cultural research that centres place and encounter in understanding Indigenous-ethnic minority relations and intercultural governance. It is envisaged the PhD project will draw on innovative theoretical insights and visual methodologies to explore the affective dimension of urban encounters. The field site for this project will be based in Northern or Central Australia e.g. Broome, Alice Springs. The PhD project will commence in February 2014 and will be supervised by DECRA Research Fellow, Dr Michele Lobo.
