We are seeking participants for an international workshop aimed at opening up comparative discussion on religion, economy and value from historical perspectives, with a particular focus on histories of religious fundraising. What can these histories tell us more broadly about economic thinking and conceptions of the social good? We particularly welcome papers from scholars interested in engaging in comparative discussion, and whose work is beyond the organisers' specialist fields (20th/21st century Tibetan Buddhism; 19th/20th century Irish Catholicism).
Applications for 2019 Summer Scholarships are now OPEN, and will CLOSE 30 September 2018.
Our annual summer scholarships support younger scholars and a scholar from rural or regional Australia undertaking postgraduate research, who require special access to the Library’s collections.
Scholars spend six weeks at the Library, commencing in the second week of January each year. They have privileged access to the Library’s materials and facilities, as well as sustained interaction with Library staff.
The conference seeks to explore the narratives of displacement and to demonstrate the validity of a cross-disciplinary approach which brings together the historical, cultural, social and literary expertise in the handling of text. The conference will particularly focus on time and space representations and on treatment of the theme of cultural ambivalence and identity conflict. The subject of displacement will be regarded as both a migration, voluntary or forced, and a sense of being socially or culturally “out of place”.
Papers are invited on topics related, but not limited, to:
Contingency in the work force is aligned with gender, even in occupations requiring extensive education and credentials. Women predominate or are disproportionately represented among adjunct faculty and non-tenure-track faculty in universities, and among the underpaid freelancers and contract workers in the digital economy.
