Interested in research and scholarly writing on Indigenous art?
With an aim to foster critical understandings of Australian Indigenous art and culture, the Power Institute has established a dissertation prize for the best PhD, DPhil or Master by Research written on Indigenous art.
The prize will be financial ($2,000) and the winning author will be invited to present their research at the University of Sydney.
Academic supervisors will be invited to nominate candidates and a jury led by Professor Ian McLean, of the University of Melbourne, will select an awardee.
Applications close September 2017.
The prizes will be awarded annually for three years, and are generously supported by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.
