State Library of Queensland (State Library) is hosting an Indigenous Languages Residency at the State Library in Brisbane from 18-22 June 2018. The Indigenous Languages Residency is valued up to $5,000 to cover travel and accommodation costs associated with the Residency. The successful applicant(s) will utilise State Library’s collections to undertake an intensive research activity into their community language/s.
Dependent on funding, there may be provision to offer up to three residencies for the week – this may entail a small group researching one language/related languages or an individual undertaking research into a specific language or language topic.
This will be a unique opportunity to source language reference materials from some unusual materials and items within State Library collections. It is also envisaged that the Residency will generate new resource materials of significance and interest to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities working in language revival.
If you are interested in applying for a State Library of Queensland, Indigenous Languages Residency (18 – 22 June 2018) please submit an Expression of Interest to Des Crump.
