HRC–Freilich Fellowship 2023 Now Open
The HRC–Freilich Project Fellowship is one of several Fellowships available via the Humanities Research Centre. The Fellowships are intended to encourage scholars of international standing to attend ANU and provoke fresh ideas within and beyond the academic community.
The theme of this year's Fellowships is 'Repair'. It comes from Yuliya Komska, who, reflecting on her father’s stained glass creations in Lviv, Ukraine in 2022, wrote: ‘In war, mourning the loss of art, be it actual or anticipated, is not separate from mourning for the senseless disruption and destruction of human life. To live is to build, to repair, to illuminate, to leave traces in the fabric of time and space.’  In more quotidian contexts, the concept and actions of repair – to ’restore by replacing a part or putting together what is torn or broken: to FIX’ [‘make firm, stable or stationary’] – is prevalent in global humanities thinking and world cultures.'
