Research Highlights

Everyday Heritage Wins ARC Grant

The University of Canberra’s Professor Tracy Ireland – Director of the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research – has been awarded a $340,000 Linkage grant from the Australian Research Council (ARC) for her Everyday Heritage project. The project is being conducted with Associate Professor Tim Sherratt (UC), Professor Jane Lydon (UWA), Dr Kate Bagnall (UTAS) and industry partner GML Heritage.

Poets Working Together

For University of Canberra Professor of Writing Paul Hetherington, poetry isn’t just his job, it’s a way of life. Paul joined UC in 2010, at a time when he felt his poetry was in a funk. Luckily, by teaching and collaborating with others he’s reclaimed his creativity and is riding the peak of his career, as Head of International Poetry Studies within the Centre for Creative and Cultural Research.
