There is a forthcoming HDR scholarship round at Deakin. This is a two-stage process. Can prospective applicants please submit an EOI using the Expression of Interest form? These need to be lodged no later than July 30.
What we are looking for in a HDR Project?
Literature and its Readers focuses on the analysis of literary form and textuality, literary production, and reception studies. We are particularly interested in projects that focus on the following areas: children’s and young adult literature; Australian and New Zealand literature; diasporic literature; poetry and poetics; popular and genre fiction (especially fantasy, magical realism, romance and science fiction); fan culture; literatures of place and environment; narratives of extremism or activism; feminist and LGBTQIA+ literatures; literature and the body; literature and philosophy; Victorian literature; modernism; and literature and comedy. The research cluster is also interested in interdisciplinary approaches to literature that draws scholarship into fields such as print culture, book history, and the digital humanities. We are also interested in projects that include archival or quantitative research methods and projects that focus on intersectionality are particularly welcome. The project may be based at the Burwood, Waurn Ponds, or Warrnambool campus.
