The Humanities Research Centre at the Australian National University is now accepting applications for the 2014 Visiting Fellowship Program. The annual theme for 2014 is " Now Showing: Cultures, Judgments, and Research on the Digital Screen", and it seeks to incite a comprehensive evaluation of the impact of digital screens: on culture and cultures, their representation and construction; on the formation and practices of social judgment including legal, political, and aesthetic judgment; and on the implications of these modalities for the future of the humanities themselves, both as fields of scholarly research and in the public sphere.
In connection with this theme, the HRC will host four major events: Law and the Visual (convened by Desmond Manderson); History, Cinema, Digital Archives (convened by Jill Julius Matthews); Visual Expression in the Disciplines of Words (convened by David MacDougall); and Where Are We? Visual Cultures of Place-Making in a Precarious Age (convened by Melinda Hinkson). All events will be held at the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.
