Our interdisciplinary workshop for Early Career Researchers
Emerging Research in Australian Studies 
will take place from Friday 16th to Saturday 17th September 2022.

You are cordially invited to participate!

We are proud to announce that African-Australian author Eugen Bacon will be giving a special writer’s talk during the workshop, followed by a Q&A session.

We will also be hearing from two keynote speakers: Stef Spronck (University of Helsinki) will be talking on ‘Language maintenance improves Indigenous well-being: What can academics do? What should academics do?’, and Tina Burger (Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf) will discuss ›Warrior Monks, Sentient Robots, and Plant People: Queerness in Australian Speculative Fiction‹.

Alongside the live presenters, there will also be several pre-recorded talks available for watching on Vimeo from 9th of September (links in the programme).

More information and a form for registration (which is optional for GASt members) can be found on our webseite: http://centreforaustralianstudies.org/events/workshop-early-career-research-in-australian-studies/

The event functions as intersessional event before the biennial Association for Australian Studies Conference in Duisburg-Essen (2023). It is envisaged to start a series of academic forums organised by GASt in cooperation with the Centre for Australian Studies (CAS, University of Cologne).
