Åse Ottosson awarded Rebecca Coyle Prize

9 January, 2017

Dr Åse Ottosson in the Department of Anthropology has been awarded the 2016 Rebecca Coyle Prize by IASPM-ANZ (International Association for the Study of Popular Music) for her publication, Making Aboriginal Men and Music in Central Australia.

The Prize is awarded to the best publication on popular music in the Australia-New Zealand and Pacific region. From the judges’ comments: “the monograph is based on substantial fieldwork with Aboriginal musicians, and studies the articulation of masculinity and indigeneity through popular music practices. The judges found the work an outstanding and original contribution to research in the field… with innovative scholarly content, methodology, and argument.”

Congratulations to Åse on her achievement!
