PhD scholarship available at Macquarie University linked to Adam Hochman's 3-year ARC-funded project Social Constructionism About Race, Deconstructed.

This project investigates the idea that race is a social construct. Race was once thought to be biologically real, a position which is increasingly rejected by scientists. Now race is commonly believed to be socially constructed, which is often understood as the view that races are real social groups. This project aims to demonstrate that when race is defined socially it loses its conceptual and historical specificity, and its value as a category. Yet we need to be able to refer to the groups that have been misunderstood to be races. This project develops and defends the category of the racialised group as an alternative to one of history's most dangerous ideas.

This scholarship is available to eligible domestic candidates to undertake either a MRes Year 2 + PhD (4 years total) or a direct entry 3-year PhD program.

The successful candidate will work closely with Dr Hochman on a topic related to the project's aims.

Students from marginalised and minority groups are especially encouraged to apply.
