Hi all,

Given the relentlessly gloomy news in the university sector, most recently in relation to the ministerial overturning of ARC grants recommended for funding, members of the list may be heartened to note the amazing number of ARC DECRAs and DPs awarded to excellent Cultural Studies projects in the latest round.

Just looking projects coded 2002, no less than three DECRAs have been awarded: Dr Rebecca Olive (UQ), Understanding ecological sensibilities in recreational lifestyle sport; Dr Michael Richardson (UNSW), Drone witnessing: technologies of perception in war and culture; and Dr Lindsay Kelley (UNSW), Tasting history: food, culture, and national identity.

In addition, there are five DPs: Professor Lelia Green, Professor Brian O'Neill, Professor Elisabeth Staksrud, Dr Liza (Elissavet) Tsaliki, Mr Kjartan Ólafsson, Perceptions of harm from adolescents accessing online sexual content; Associate Professor Lee Wallace, Professor Annamarie Jagose, The couple: commitment and durability in the era of marriage equality; Associate Professor Belinda Smaill, Associate Professor Christopher Healy, Associate Professor Therese Davis, Remaking the Australian environment through documentary film and television; Dr Anna Cristina Pertierra, Associate Professor Czarina Saloma-Akpedonu, Dr Rosana Pinheiro Machado, New consumer cultures in the Global South; and Professor Susan Luckman, The value of craft skills to the future of manufacturing in Australia.

A number of CSAA members were also successful in projects funded under different codes.

Many of us are all too aware how much labour goes into these applications, and for every project successfully funded, many important and worthy projects are not. Everyone who makes it through this gruelling process is to be commended.

For this very reason, it is cause for celebration and encouragement to see so many of our members will have the support they deserve to pursue these significant and timely projects. It certainly bodes well for Cultural Studies research in Australia! I'm sure members of the list join me in sending warmest congratulations to our colleagues above.

Best wishes,
