This year is turning into a year of the Celts: the major exhibition at the National Museums Scotland, the Europa conference by the Prehistoric Society, our own lecture on the Celts by Fellow Dr Fraser Hunter, and now an opportunity for one lucky scholar to attend the 9th Australian Conference of Celtic Studies in Sydney, Australia!
The Society is delighted to collaborate with our friends in Celtic Studies at the University of Sydney, the Scottish Australian Heritage Council and the Sydney Society for Scottish History, with the generous support of several of our Australian Fellows, and a donation from our Honorary Fellow, Vincent Megaw, to offer a travelling scholarship to attend ‘Memory and Foresight in the Celtic World’ – the 9th Australian Conference of Celtic Studies. The conference will take place in Sydney, Australia from Tuesday the 27th to Friday the 30th September 2016.
The travelling scholarship will cover the cost of travel to and from the conference venue at the University of Sydney, Australia. Accommodation will be provided by conference organisers in private residence and the conference fee will be waived.
The Travelling Scholarship is open to anyone under the age of 26 or a student and the successful applicants will be expected to deliver a paper at the conference and also speak to a joint meeting of the Scottish Australian Heritage Council and the Sydney Society for Scottish History.
Deadline for submission of application – midnight Friday 1st April 2016.
