University of Tasmania Elite PhD Scholarship Opportunity
Australian Research Council funded Linkage Project - Creating the Bilbao Effect: The Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and the Social and Cultural Coordinates of Urban Regeneration Through Arts Tourism ($32,892pa tax-free)
We are seeking applications to this high profile and exciting new project from students with a range of possible backgrounds including social anthropology, tourist studies, sociology, urban studies, cultural studies, human geography, regional studies and others, and with interests in cultural tourism, art tourism, cultural policy, cultural and creative industries and tourism theory. They will be based in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Tasmania with excellent access to MONA and key tourism organisations and sites. They will join a team of two other PhDs and one Research Associate attached to the project.  Here is an opportunity to conduct research within a major Australian Research Council Linkage Project with enthusiastic industry partners.
You will work with mostly with Prof Adrian Franklin on the nature of tourism to MONA and its impact on the wider tourism field. We are interested in understanding how tourists engage with MONA (at its main museum as well as its various arts and music activities) and how its success might built on by other tourism sectors, particularly nature tourism and heritage tourism.
The project is led by Prof. Adrian Franklin (University of Tasmania) with fellow Chief Investigators Prof. Justin O’Connor (Monash University) and Prof. Nikos Papastergiadis (University of Melbourne). Industry partners are MONA itself, Hobart City Council, Glenorchy City Council and the Tasmanian Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Arts.
