Seven exceptional members of the ANU community will head to the United States this year with prestigious Fulbright Fellowships.
The cohort – one of the largest for ANU in recent years – includes researchers, professional staff and graduates from across the University.
Since 1949, the Fulbright Program has provided funding for close to 6,000 Australian and American students, scholars, and professionals to undertake impactful programs of study and collaborative research exchange.
One of the ANU researchers heading to the US is Dr Anna Raupach, from the ANU School of Art & Design. A multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on climate change, Anna will use her Fulbright Scholar Award to study how satellites produce and disrupt environmental data at the University of Southern California.
“My Fulbright project will explore the cultural implications of satellites through cross-disciplinary creative arts practice,” Dr Raupach said.
“Using a variety of art forms, my research will investigate the omnipresence of satellites that both produce and disrupt environmental data to critically address the socio-political issues of increasing network technologies under crowded skies.”
