The Australian Association for Pacific Studies (AAPS) is pleased to call for nominations for the inaugural AAPS Tracey Banivanua Mar PhD Prize. Named after the late Pacific historian, and colleague and friend to many within the AAPS community, the prize recognises the most outstanding PhD thesis by an AAPS student member working in the field of Pacific Studies. The winning thesis will be selected by a panel of judges in the field, on the basis of its scholarly excellence and its contribution to AAPS’ vision for a vibrant, critical, creative, and decolonial Pacific Studies. Theses from any disciplinary background—and particularly those using cross- or trans-disciplinary approaches—are welcome to be submitted for consideration.
Applications due 31 January 2020
