Freda Bage 3-year Fellowship

Hila Dafny received Magna Cum Laude for a Bachelor of Nursing from Hebrew University, Jerusalem and also has a Masters in Public Health from the same institution. She has just started a PhD at the University of Southern Queensland. While working as an ICU nurse in Jerusalem, Hila became aware of levels of verbal and physical violence that are directed at nurses by both patients and visitors. This experience has led her to develop a PhD study of how violence towards nurses affects their ability to interact with patients, visitors and colleagues. Despite worldwide recognition of violence against nurses, there has been little research in the Australian context. Hila’s mixed-methods study thus has the potential to influence workplace practice for nurses and raise public awareness of this issue. Hila plans to use this study as a basis for directly influencing public health policy and to develop an academic career.

Janet’s thesis was a study of change in identity in response to the experience of war, and was centrally based upon the war diaries of an Australian Great War army nurse. She has published articles based upon her research in the Journal of Australian Studies (2003), Health and History (2004) and Australian Historical Studies(2006). Janet’s work whilst on the Fellowship was awarded the 2004 Ken Inglis Prize by the Editorial Board of Australian Historical Studies, and the 2005 Max Kelly Medal, by the History Council of NSW. Her current projects reflect her continuing interest in the field of personal narratives, and the individual experience of war.

Monica Gagliano
Monica is studying for her PhD in marine biology at James Cook University. She is an Italian National who is working on the sustainability of reef fish populations with a view towards understanding, “how little fish grow up to be big fish”. Her work is directly relevant to Australian concerns at the moment, and in the long term she hopes to work for an international body involved in sea ecology.

Jennifer Koenig
Jennifer is completing her PhD in tropical wildlife. Her topic is the sustainability of aboriginal art carving practice in the Northern Territory. Her mission is to make sure that the aboriginal artists do not deplete the trees that they need to do their woodcarvings. Since this type of carving is apparently a fairly new tradition in the Northern Territory, it is important that sustainability practices be put in place now.

Caragh’s current research examines the views of scientists and clinicians involved in experimental neuroscience, with regard to the ethical, clinical, social and legal issues raised by the imperative to move from ‘bench-to-bedside’, or from research to treatment. This project forms part of the Wellcome Trust-funded LABTEC (London & Brighton Translation Ethics Centre) programme hosted at the Centre for Biomedicine & Society. Caragh received fellowships from AFUWQ-FFI in 2003 and 2005 which contributed to funding her PhD in Sociology at the University of Cambridge. With Bryan Turner she is editor of the Handbook of the Sociology of Medical Education (Routledge, 2009), which builds on work developed during her doctoral studies.

Prior to joining the University of Sydney faculty she worked for a period for the law firm Blake Dawson Waldron Solicitors (as it then was), and then took up a position as legal officer at the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission. In 1991 she completed the Masters of Law program at Harvard University and then moved to New York to undertake a JSD at Columbia University. Her doctoral work entitled ‘Embodying Justice: Legal Responses to the Transgressive Body’, examined the regulation of marginalised bodies, with a particular focus on the pregnant body. She specialises in feminist legal theory, health law, genetics and the law, disability and law and culture. Her current scholarship is in the area of law that can broadly be described as regulating bodies. This includes laws governing reproductive technologies, biotechnology as well as the legal responses to developments in genetic technologies and the challenges these pose to legal understandings of normality, disability, individuality, and family. She is currently involved in several major research projects in the areas of reproductive technology, disability and emergent genetic technologies.
