Have you always wanted to study Heavy Metal music or just want to pass a class you know something about? Have you ever wanted to live in Australia?
The University of Newcastle in Australia has just announced a new scholarship for Ph.D. students who want to study “the social geography of heavy metal culture”.
The scholarship will be offered to two domestic students or one international and is worth close to $20,000. The description for the class reads:
The class will focus on the social geography of the metal scene in Australia and what is it about Australian Heavy Metal that makes it distinctive and what sorts of lyrical themes have Australian Metal bands adopted?
The university’s Director of Human Geography, Simon Springer says he wishes they offered this class when he was a student.
