BA, BFA and BCA Honours Research Projects in Cultural Environments and Heritage

The Cultural Environments and Heritage (CEH) program is an exciting initiative of the College of Arts and Law and the Centre for Colonialism and its Aftermath, offering honours students the opportunity to work with material from a number of outstanding cultural institutions located within the extraordinary cultural environments of Tasmania. Each year successful applicants undertake their honours research under the joint supervision of an academic from their home discipline and a specialist from the cultural institution.

Projects are available in a number of teaching programs within the College of Arts and Law, including Aboriginal Studies, English, History, Media, Sociology and Art.

Partner institutions include: Heritage Tasmania, the Morris Miller Library (University of Tasmania), the National Trust (Tasmania), the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office, the Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority, Narryna Heritage Museum, the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery and the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.
