The VU Office for Research will host the following workshop: ARC – Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA Scheme)

Guest Speaker:  Dr Matthew Klugman – 2013 DECRA Receipient

Dr Matthew Klugman researches and teaches in the history of sport. His research interests include those who love and hate sport, and the intersections of sport, passions, bodies, gender, sexuality, religion, migration and race. In 2012 Matthew was the inaugural Research Fellow of the National Sports Museum where he worked on a 2013 exhibition and book (with Dr Gary Osmond, University of Queensland) to mark the twentieth anniversary of the Indigenous AFL player Nicky Winmar responding to racial abuse by lifting his jumper and pointing with pride to his skin. Matthew recently received an Australian Research Council DECRA (Discovery Early Career Researcher Award) Fellowship for 2013-15 which examines the sports mania that developed in Melbourne, Manchester and Boston from the mid-1800s.
