The Centre for the History of European Discourses was incorporated in the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities in August 2015.

The information in this website is therefore out of date but retained for archival and staff purposes.

During the summer break of 2014/2015 (1 December – 31 January) the Centre for the History of European Discourses (CHED) will offer two eight-week Summer Scholarships to promising UQ Arts students who have completed two or more years of study, and are planning to do honours or a research higher degree. The scholarships are for research work under the supervision of a member or affiliate of CHED. 

Key Features:
  • A weekly stipend of $300
  • Supervision by well-established scholars
  • Access to facilities and materials that may not be readily available elsewhere.
  • A capacity to obtain credit (or milestone requirements) towards your undergraduate degree (subject to degree rules and structure)
  • Work experience as a Research Assistant
The Project:
The main goal of this scholarship is to help students design, execute, and complete a research project (such as a thesis chapter or article) or to prepare a prospectus for a larger project (such as an Honors thesis), in the allotted time of 8 weeks. Research areas include:
  • History of religion and science
  • History of witchcraft and magic
  • History of medicine
  • History of sexuality
  • Theory and philosophy of history
  • Critical Theory, including gender studies, queer theory and critical theories of the body.
  • British literary history
Research Assistance:
Throughout the eight-week scholarship, summer scholars will spend 50% of their time at work on their projects, and will work as a research assistant to CHED researchers during the other 50%.
Closing date for applications:  4pm, Saturday August 30, 2014
