A very warm welcome to A/Prof Anne Harris, who begins with the School today as Vice-Chancellor’s Principal Research Fellow.
Anne has worked in Education at Monash University and VU. Prior to that she developed and taught a creative writing program at Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Education in Alice Springs. She has 10 years experience as a secondary school teacher, teaching English, Media and Drama and earlier in her career, she was artistic director of a theatre company in New York.
Anne brings with her a track record of successful grants, including a recent ARC Early Career Research Award (DECRA) and an impressive list of publications with themes around creativity, LGBTIQ, and arts-based education.
I know Anne comes with good connections already into the school and a great reputation. I am delighted that she is joining us.
Anne has a number of strong links with staff in other schools and she will be located in building 51 on the City.
We will have a morning tea shortly to welcome Anne to the School. In the meantime if you see Anne wandering the corridors please introduce yourself. I know you will make her feel welcome.
