Dear Colleague,

Throughout May and June, the Australian Academy of the Humanities is running briefing sessions to inform scholars in the arts and humanities about new funding opportunities for international linkages.

The Melbourne session will take place at the University of Melbourne.

When:   2pm-4pm, Tuesday, 19 May 2009.
Where:  University of Melbourne. Venue: Yasuko Hiraoko Myer Room, Sidney Myer Asia Centre.
(For directions, please see http://www.asiacentre.unimelb.edu.au/contact.php)

Senator Kim Carr, Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, has recently opened up funding through the International Science Linkages (ISL) programme to include the humanities and arts. This is part of a $1 million boost to support the arts, humanities and social sciences through their two learned academies. The broad aim of the programme is to facilitate and support research cooperation between Australian researchers and leading counterparts from overseas.

In the second half of 2009, the Australian Academy of the Humanities will conduct a funding round to support a mix of international collaborative research activities to take place in 2010.

We are seeking input from Australian humanities and arts scholars to help shape that funding programme.

The briefing session will feature short presentations on the ISL programme and grant administration, with plenty of time for open discussion.

Please RSVP by 18 May 2009 to Kylie Brass, by email kylie.brass at humanities.org.au, or phone (02) 9036 7642.
