Two full-time postgraduate scholarships are available for suitably qualified candidates with a good honours or masters degree in history, HPS, or anthropology to undertake research studies leading to a PhD. The PhD topic should relate to the ARC Laureate Fellowship project, which focuses on the development and transmission of concepts of race and human difference in the southern hemisphere during the 20th century, especially on those ideas derived from biological or anthropological studies. Through comparative and transnational histories we seek to reveal influential debates over racial difference conducted by scientists, anthropologists and others across the global South. We are especially interested in projects that bring southern settler societies together into the global picture of 20th-century race science.
