CFA: Digital Treasures PhD Scholarships

Treasured Possessions Scholarship-1

The Centre for Creative and Cultural Research is seeking two PhD students to join its new Flagship Program, Digital Treasures. The Digital Treasures program builds on our strengths in digital design and cultural heritage. Digitisation is transforming cultural collections into digital treasure-houses, and opening up new opportunities, and new challenges, in how we represent, access, and apply these collections. Our recent projects such as ManlyImages, Trove Mosaic, and Australian Prints and Printmaking provide a taste of what’s possible. Students in the program will work with staff including Mitchell Whitelaw, Ana Sanchez Laws, Sam Hinton and Stephen Barrass.
