Australian Research funding must be awarded without political interference.

Australian Research funding must be awarded without political interference.

 This week at the Senate Estimates hearings, the ARC confirmed that in recent funding rounds for Discovery Projects, Discovery Early Career Researcher Awards (DECRA) and Future Fellows Awards, the then Minister for Education Senator Simon Birmingham denied funding to 11 projects recommended by the Australian Research Council. All of the projects were in the humanities, with a combined total proposed funding of 4.2 million dollars.

 This action is very concerning, as is Senator Birmingham’s willingness to defend his interference in the award process with disparaging comments about the worth of the humanities projects denied funding. READ MORE

AARE Theory Workshop - Sunshine Coast

AARE Theory Workshop - Sunshine Coast

We had a very successful theory workshop weekend at the University of Sunshine Coast (USC) with lots of challenges to participants by presenters and through an array of experiences. We started with an excellent Welcome to Country and dialogue with Lyndon Davis who had many yarns to share about his Elders past and present as well as the Country where we met. Professor Catherine Manuthunga welcomed us to USC and stayed for workshops until she had to fly out of the country. As our keynote Professor Lyn Yates was ill and could not come at the last minute Dr lisahunter did an unKeynote about making sense of educational narratives and we went through a process to create Narrative Research Circles as a way for all participants to introduce themselves and share some of their work. This was digested at a local Thai restaurant with lovely food and great company. The next day A/Prof Liz Mackinlay took us deep into feminist narratives through the use of drawings and dialogue in 'Writing with theory on the sensational edge' followed by sessions by Dr Kevin Lowe who worked us through what community responsive research might be for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and Dr Michael Crowhurst who explored and experimented with connections between stories, practice, research and theory. On the final day Professor Tania Aspland used a responsive method of presentation to draw on participants own experiences to create a discussion around qualitative research design and alignment between epistemology, methodology, theory and examination or evaluation. The productive weekend was framed by generous presentations, lovely spaces and substantial hospitality by the USC participants and via co-hosting organisation from Dr Rachael Dwyer. Stayed tuned for 2019 venues and dates.

This money will be used by AARE to offer bursaries to help subsidise non and low waged ECR and Postgraduate students attendance at the AARE conference. One hundred percent of money raised will go towards these bursaries, either for the 2018 year or subsequent years.
