Vice-Chancellor’s International Inter-Campus PhD Travel Grant

Thanks to Monah Graduate Research Office for awarding me the Vice-Chancellor’s International Inter-Campus PhD Travel Grant, a one-off travel grant to subsidise a visit to one of Monash University’s international locations. This is an opportunity for me to meet and collaborate with like-minded researchers and to develop my own global research network.

Australian Book Review Masterclass

Thanks to Australian Book Review, which, following a writing masterclass led by its editorial team, offered me the coveted opportunity to contribute a review to the forthcoming December issue. ABR writes, “[t]he most recent masterclass concluded on August 20, just as we were going to press. All the participants are encouraged to submit a review or Op-Ed piece for consideration by the editorial team, so that we can award two paid commissions. As happened last time, the quality was so high we ended up tapping four PhD students: Merav Fima (Literary and Cultural Studies), Luke Forbes (Theatre Performance and Music), Christine Lambrianidis (Theatre Performance and Music), and J.R. Burgmann (Literature and Cultural Studies) […] We look forward to publishing this talented quartet in coming months.”
