UNSW Canberra hosts HDR symposium
Sixty-five students presented their work at the third annual UNSW Canberra Humanities and Social Sciences Postgraduate Symposium this month.
The students from UNSW Canberra, UNSW Sydney, University of Canberra and Australian National University presented on a diverse range of topics including ethnic minority needs in Myanmar and disaster response operations.
Humanities Professor Shirley Scott said the event aimed to provide a supportive environment for students and academics to interact with their peers.
“This is the first year that we have included Honours students on the program, and we are particularly pleased to have their participation,” Professor Scott said.
“Honours is the first step on the research pathway and this adds an important new dimension to the day.”
The keynote address was delivered by ANU Associate Professor Bina D’Costa, an expert on displacement, global protection responses and human rights. She discussed the importance of being a compassionate academic.
The presentations were delivered across 16 panels exploring key 21st century research areas including Regional Powers, Geopolitics and International Law; New Directions in Education; and Women, Empowerment and Development.
Seven UNSW students – Philippa Louey, Ivana M.Devcic, Imogen D’Souza, Kade Newell, Anna Souvannalath, Matylda Brecz and Bagus Wahyu Hartono – won bursaries.
