Dear All,

It¹s my pleasure to be able to announce a number of new CSAA initiatives, as
voted by the CSAA executive at our last meeting in August. These three
programmes are being introduced on a trial basis for 2006. If they prove
successful, we will endeavour to continue them into the future:

> 1. The CSAA will present two Cultural Studies Association of Australasia
> Awards for Best Postgraduate Abstracts to the writers of the two best
> abstracts submitted by New Zealand postgraduate and / or unwaged scholars to
> the 2006 annual conference.
> (The idea of these awards is to go some way toward matching the ARC¹s Cultural
> Research Network Awards, which have proved a great success, but were only open
> to Australian students. The CSAA awards come with bursaries of $600 AUD each
> to accommodate the two winners at the Saville for the days of the conference,
> and to cover some of their expenses).
> 2. The CSAA will set up a bursary of $2800 to assist scholars without
> institutional support (S.W.I.S. for short) to attend the 2006 annual
> conference. 
> (The idea of this bursary is primarily to lend some assistance to scholars who
> have completed their doctorates, and no longer have access to institutional
> sources of support such as conference funds. We particularly want to assist
> scholars who are unemployed / under-employed, and in search of academic work).
> 3. The CSAA will establish an award of $1500 for a cultural studies project on
> a specified theme (to be announced), to be granted as the outcome of a
> competitive bid.

The first two initiatives are open to all scholars whose papers have been
accepted at CSAA 2006. An email will be forwarded to all those scholars
shortly, with a request for eligible candidates to nominate themselves in
the manner there advertised. The terms, guidelines and submission dates for
the third initiative will be announced through CSAA-forum in the coming
