Masterclass with Professor Koichi Iwabuchi
University of Melbourne, Friday 19 February 2010

local/national politics of multiculturalism and postcolonialism
The ARC Cultural Research Network is pleased to announce a masterclass with
Prof. Koichi Iwabuchi (Waseda University, Japan), to be held at the
University of Melbourne.  With the CRN¹s ARC funding now at an end, this
will be one of your last chances to participate in one of the CRN¹s
masterclasses with visiting scholars; these events have provided some of the
highlights of the CRN¹s Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher Development
program since the Network began in 2005.
A maximum of twelve participants for this masterclass will be chosen via
competitive application, and applications are welcome from all
Melbourne-based postgraduate students and Early Career Researchers working
in the broad field of cultural studies. The class will run from 9am-5pm, is
free of charge to successful applicants, and includes lunch and
morning/afternoon teas.
To apply please provide a brief (max. 2 page) CV, and a one-page statement
introducing yourself and your research to Prof. Iwabuchi; in this document,
you should also highlight your research¹s connection to the masterclass
theme and/or Prof. Iwabuchi¹s work.  Applications are due by 1 February
2010, and should be sent to Alison Huber at <huberal at unimelb.edu.au>.
