Recipient of the 2021 Humanities Travelling Fellowships

20 Jul 2021

Congratulations to School of Languages and Cultures Dr Sheng-Hsun Lee,  Lecturer in the Chinese Discipline, on being one of the recipients of the Humanities Travelling Fellowships (HTF). The Fellowship enables early career researchers to undertake research domestically and overseas, including accessing archives and other research materials and connecting with international researchers and networks.

Recognising the ongoing restrictions to international travel and the continuing impact of COVID 19 on researchers, this year’s round of the HTFs featured an expanded list of eligible expenses including domestic travel, domestic and international research assistance, ordering and scanning archival and/or source material and carer’s duties; including expenses for child care to enable parents to conduct research.

The successful applicants will undertake a range of projects that address issues of national significance including a study of the impact of the digital divide on regional Australia, a collaborative and  interdisciplinary research project  on the intersection of philosophy and bioengineering, and a study of the use and abuse of pandemic narratives in the era of COVID-19.
