Peter Goodenough Scholarship in Anthropology

The University of Queensland Anthropology Museum seeks a doctoral candidate who is a Papua New Guinean citizen to work on the Museum’s PNG Collection. The successful applicant will build a project around an aspect of local and national identity in PNG embodied in material and/ or visual culture. The applicant will have access to the Museum Collection and will gain experience in museum curation and collection management as part of their studies. Among its 24000 accessioned items, the Museum holds more than 4000 artefacts and art works created by people living in PNG and 1700 photographs taken in PNG by missionaries, colonial officials and
other visitors. Much of this material dates from the early and mid twentieth century.
