Major congratulations to Chris Dixon, who has received an ARC Discovery grant worth $110,000 for his project ‘Black Americans and the Pacific War: African-American encounters with the South Pacific, 1941-1945’ for 2013-2015. According to the project summary, it will explore “African Americans’ experiences in the Pacific War. By placing Black Americans’ experiences in a racially segregated military culture in the context of European colonisation of the Pacific, it will cast new light on issues of racial and national identity in a region of continuing significance to the United States and Australia.”
