FASS academics receive Australian Research Council Grants
The results of the Australian Research Council (ARC) applications have been announced.
Three new ARC grant winners were from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, confirming UTS’s position as one of the leading institutions for Indigenous research in the country, and continue our growth in research in Communication and Media Studies.
The recipients and grants are:
- Gawain Bodkin-Andrews (Discovery Indigenous) Shielding our Futures: Storytelling with Ancestral and Living Knowledges ($502,000)
- Michelle Trudgett (Discovery Indigenous) Developing Indigenous Australian Early Career Researchers ($503,015)
- James Meese (DECRA) Understanding algorithmic distribution in the Australian media industry ($406,716).
The ARC plays an important role in the provision of Government support for research in Australia. Through the National Competitive Grants Program the Government supports top academics to conduct cutting-edge research.
In addition to the ARC grants, other FASS academics have also recently received significant external research funding.
- Nick McClean (Fisheries Research and Development Corporation) Knowing Who Has Influence - Key Influencers for Socially Supported Fisheries and Aquaculture ($199,829)
- Kyungja Jung (Academy of Korean Studies) Local Agency and National Responses to Globalization: the South Korean case in comparative, transnational and diasporic perspective ($225,390)
When FASS academics win external research funding it allows them to increase the scope and scale of their projects. It allows FASS researchers to employ the next generation of researchers, and provides them with the opportunity to do work that can change the world
