Morrisseau Project PhD Fellowship
Carleton University, Ottawa, ON/Canada
Contemporary Indigenous art history in Canada owes a debt to the art and
life of Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau, a trail blazer and cultural
warrior whose unique visual language has shaped diverse ways of thinking
about Indigenous arts today. Under the directorship of Dr. Carmen Robertson,
Tier I Canada Research Chair in North American Indigenous Art and Material
Culture, the Morrisseau Project (1955-85) at Carleton University is
investigating the aesthetic, political, and cultural work of this
Anishinaabe artist in order to create a comprehensive understanding of
Morrisseau's art and artistic impact that will enable new ways of analyzing
Indigenous artworks and their circulation.
The Morrisseau Project (MP) is currently recruiting a new PhD student to
join the Morrisseau Project team and conduct original dissertation research
on some aspect of Indigenous art history in Canada or the United States that
contributes to conceiving of art through Indigenous ways of knowing.
Potential dissertation topics include: Woodland School and Anishinaabe
artistic contributions by artists in communities, art galleries or museum
collections; contemporary curatorial articulations of Indigenous ways of
knowing; the impact of the Woodland School on Indigenous popular culture;
theorizing Indigenous histories of art; building new histories of art
inspired by Morrisseau's entry into the mainstream art world since the
1960s. (Note that our Morrisseau Project focuses particularly on the period
from 1955 through 1985.)
In addition to the admissions funding package, travel bursaries, and awards
offered by Carleton University, the MP PhD fellow will be guaranteed the
following funding package in Year 1, which will be renewable for up to four
* A scholarship of $500/semester (up to $1,500/year)
* Two semester-long research assistantships (of 130 hours/semester x
$41.70/hour x 2 semesters = $10,842)
* Up to $1,000 funding for research or conference travel related to
the Morrisseau Project
If the PhD student is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, they may
also be eligible to receive a $2,000 top-up fellowship from Carleton
University in Year 1.
The MP PhD Fellowship is available to students beginning their studies in
Fall 2020 in the Cultural Mediations PhD program in Carleton's Institute for
Comparative Studies in Literature, Art and Culture (ICSLAC). Please contact
