Postgraduate Scholarship at UQ in Television and Cultural Studies


As part of Professor Graeme Turner's Federation Fellowship program at
the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies, the University of
Queensland is seeking applicants for a postgraduate research scholarship
working on a topic related to the Fellowship. The Federation Fellowship
program investigates the role of television in a post-broadcast era
increasingly dominated by new media formats such as the Internet. Given
the traditional importance of television as a social institution for the
democratic state, the project asks to what extent television will
continue to serve such a function and whether new media forms such as
online journalism are likely to take its place. The project will be
funding one scholarship a year for the next three years.


Professor Turner's Federation Fellowship program has an international
comparative remit and applicants wishing to develop comparative
projects, or who are capable of working in a language other than
English, will be especially welcome. 


The scholarship comes with a modest support package for research costs
and conference travel in addition to the standard APA stipend. The
successful applicant would be supervised by Graeme Turner and contribute
to the activities of the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies (CCCS)
as well as the teaching School in which they would be enrolled. More
information regarding the Federation Fellowship program can be found on
the CCCS website at www.cccs.uq.edu.au


Potential applicants should contact Graeme Turner directly to discuss
their proposed topics via email (Graeme.Turner at uq.edu.au) or by phoning
07 3365 7183 before the due date. Information regarding the UQ
postgraduate scholarship program and the application process can be
found at http://www.uq.edu.au/grad-school/apa. 


Applications close on October 16.
