Zeeuw’s presentation, titled “How Might Networking with Creative Arts Doctoral Programs in Australia Help U.S. Art Programs Become More Globally Competitive?,” drew largely from her involvement in an extensive international research project that’s focused on developing new approaches to ethics and research integrity training. A team of education professionals from Australia is currently undertaking the project, which is bring funded by a $215,000 grant from the Australian Office of Learning and Teaching. Zeeuw is the only member of the group not from Australia.
Zeeuw has also been invited to present her paper, “The Haunted Archive: Picturing the Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital as a Place of Radical Otherness” at the Third International Interdisciplinary Biennial Conference. The conference will be held at the University of South Africa from August 28-September 1, 2016.
