On 6 June at the AIATSIS Native Title Conference in Townsville, Attorney-General Nicola Roxon announced the recipients of the 2012-13 Native Title Anthropologist Grants program.
For the third year in a row, ANU’s Centre for Native Title Anthropology (CNTA) was successful, receiving funding of over $220,000 to deliver a range of professional development initiatives for anthropologists working in the area of native title.
CNTAs programs provide a range of professional development programs for native title anthropologists at different stages of their careers, addressing a recognised need for such training and support within this important sub-discipline of applied anthropology. Initiatives funded under the 2012-13 CNTA grant include a 10-week visiting fellow program for anthropologists currently employed outside of academia; three Student Fieldwork Placements for third year anthropology students; and a program of professional development workshops and symposiums.
CNTA activities are delivered with the support of the Institute of Professional Practice in Heritage and the Arts (IPPHA) and the School of Archaeology & Anthropology, within the Research School of Humanities & the Arts (RSHA).
