The Indigenous Settler Relations Collaboration (ISRC) is continually looking to develop new relationships and build on its knowledge base through partnership, contract and other research.
In the collaboration there is a multidisciplinary team of leading researchers that are dedicated to exploring issues relating to Indigenous Settler Relations.
The collaboration is open to both short-term and long-term partnerships, and are adaptable to a wide variety research needs. If you believe the ISRC would be a suitable fit for your initiative, research project or partnership then we encourage you to email the collaboration with your enquiry along with relevant contact details.
A summary of the publications produced by collaborators can be seen on the Publications web page.
Interdisciplinary Graduate Research Program in Indigenous Settler Relations
The Indigenous Settler Relations Collaboration’s Interdisciplinary Graduate Research Program is open to graduate researchers in any faculty undertaking a graduate research related to the emerging field of Indigenous-settler relations in Australia and the world. The program will connect students with researchers across disciplines, fostering an engaged and supportive intellectual community, and creating a strong cohort experience for the duration of their study.
Eligible students must have commenced a PhD or Masters by Research.
2021 applications closed Friday 5 February. Applications for the 2022 Program will open in November.
The collaboration would love to hear from current or prospective graduate research students undertaking study related to the emerging field of Indigenous-settler relations. Get in touch via our Contact web page. The ISRC can assist with:
- Identifying potential supervisors
- Support with application processes
- Engaged research support for existing PhD and Masters by Research students
- Networking opportunities with collaborators
We encourage students at all levels to subscribe to our mailing list to hear of other opportunities to get involved with the collaboration.
The ISRC runs a reading group each semester. Our semi-regular meetings bring together graduate researchers, early career researchers and senior academics across myriad disciplines to discuss the chosen text, generating new ideas and relationships.
If you are interested in joining the ISRC reading group, email a few brief sentences about yourself and your research to I-SRC@unimelb.edu.au.
