Degrees offered

The Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Research (ICCR) program offers a unique opportunity to explore new modes of research, as well as use traditional scholarly methods, to provide innovative insights into the different ways that cross-cultural relations and histories are constructed and represented. The program is led by internationally renowned scholars from across the ANU Research School of Humanities and the Arts. We offer expert supervision within and across a range of disciplinary boundaries including anthropology, visual anthropology, digital humanities, history, art history, literature, heritage and museum studies and the visual arts.

You will be encouraged to adopt an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective in your research. In addition, expert advisers are available from a range of national cultural institutions located in Canberra including the National Museum of Australia, the National Library of Australia, the National Portrait Gallery and the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies.

By undertaking research in the ICCR program you will be able to take advantage of intellectual and multimedia collaborations and have opportunities to be involved in the production of exhibitions, colloquia and multi-media projects, as well as to undertake short, practical internships. The program provides unique opportunities for research training in the context of collaborative team research, in partnership with cultural institutions and industries.
