Professor Gary Foley
$45,000 per annum (flat rate)
The Aboriginal History Archive (AHA) invites applications from scholars with a strong understanding of the nature of community control to conduct independent and team-based research, which will contribute to a research project funded by the Paul Ramsay Foundation.
Led by Professor Gary Foley, the overarching aim of the project is to unearth Indigenous history, stories, alternative narratives and learnings from the past, to engage communities, present into the public debate, provide materials for curricula, and, most importantly, make submissions to the Yoo-rrook Justice Commission in Victoria. Participation in this project provides a unique opportunity to contribute to impactful research in Indigenous history, truth and justice, and generate results to support, accelerate and directly impact the work of the Justice Commission.
