Associate Professor Anna Green, from the Stout Research Centre for New Zealand Studies at Victoria University of Wellington, is currently advertising two Master of Arts degree scholarships for her Marsden-funded project The Missing Link: Pākehā Intergenerational Memory. Applications close on 2 December 2016 for study in 2017.
Anna's project is the first national study of multigenerational New Zealand European/Pākehā family memory. The research focuses upon the descendants of European settlers who came to New Zealand before 1914.
The two available scholarships are for Master of Arts in New Zealand Studies. The descriptions are as follows:
Scholarship 1 invites proposals for an oral history research project on family memory in the Pasifika community. This could be focused, for example, upon either an extended family or a single generation from several families.
Scholarship 2 invites proposals for an oral history research project on any aspect of family memory in New Zealand.
Applicants must have a B.A.Hons (or equivalent) in History, Pacific Studies or Samoan Studies/Fa'asamoa; Anthropology; or cognate discipline.
Applications should be sent directly to Associate Professor Anna Green, Stout Research Centre for New Zealand Studies, with a CV and an outline of your research proposal. Late applications will not be considered.
