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.”

2018 Graduate Research Writing and Publishing Workshop in Prato

Thanks to Monash University’s Faculty of Arts for awarding me a bursary to attend the 2018 Graduate Research Writing and Publishing Workshop in Prato. Monash University explains, “the workshop’s aim is to mentor graduate research candidates in the Faculty to enhance their skills in preparing, writing, and getting an article published in a major academic journal or a chapter published in a book released by a recognised quality commercial or university press publisher. The workshop is comprised of a three-day residency at the Monash University Prato Centre.”
