Explore Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Research
The Research School of Humanities and the Arts at ANU offers you the opportunity to undertake a higher degree by research through a unique program – Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Research (ICCR). The program offers expert supervision across a range of disciplines including anthropology, visual anthropology, history, art history, literature, heritage and museum studies and the visual arts.
To complete your higher degree by research a thesis of 100,000 words (for a Doctor of Philosophy) or 60,000 words (for a Master of Philosophy) is generally required. In the ICCR program, however, it is possible that along with your written work you may submit, as part of your thesis, creative work such as a film, photography, digital media, museum exhibition or more.
Some examples of current research ICCR students are undertaking include:
