The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (CHE) invites prospective honours and postgraduate students to a two-day workshop to discuss the possibility of locating your studies in our Centre, and to showcase the support we can offer senior students.

The national Centre is led by The University of Western Australia, and has nodes at the Universities of Queensland, Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne. Representatives from all five universities will be taking part in this workshop. Our Centre’s primary historical focus is the period 1100-1800, though one of our research programs extends forward into contemporary culture, especially in an Australian context. Our researchers are drawn from literary, historical, art historical, music, and performance studies. The Centre is funded from 2011 to mid-2018, and has recently received a ringing endorsement from the Australian Research Council in its mid-term review. One of our key platforms is the development and encouragement of collaborative research projects and active research communities, and we are keen to encourage honours and graduate students to work with us in this internationally burgeoning scholarly field, and to contribute to our vibrant national network.

This workshop will include a video presentation from the Centre’s Director, and talks from other research leaders, current graduate students, and postdoctoral research fellows. We will sketch out some of our central research questions and projects, open up some of our key methodological problems, and suggest some practical ways you might wish to orient your own research projects around the study of the History of Emotions, in order to benefit from the intellectual support of this national Centre.  For more information on benefits offered to CHE postgraduate and honours students see our Future Students section of the website.

Undergraduate students in their 3rd year or Honours year of an Undergraduate degree, or intending/ enrolled students in a Postgraduate degree, are encouraged to apply to take part in this Workshop.

To register, fill out  the Application Form – see the link above-- and if you are applying for funding, submit an academic transcript and a short letter of support from a lecturer or tutor to Leanne Hunt at leanne.hunt@unimelb.edu.au by 11:55pm (AEDST) November 6, 2014.

Registration includes afternoon tea and welcoming drinks on Thursday 4 December; morning tea and lunch on Friday 5 December; and provision of a small reading pack.

Students living outside Melbourne may also apply for travel funding, which may include:

  • return economy travel from a student’s place of residence to Melbourne
  • one night’s accommodation (Thursday 4 December) at a University of Melbourne residential college


PLEASE NOTE: If you are unable to attend the Workshop but are interested in a possible Honours or Postgraduate dissertation with CHE, please contact the Administrative Officer at your local node, or email Pam Bond (pam.bond@uwa.edu.au) and you will be put into contact with a CHE member who can assist you.
