    Philippa Maddern Award 2019 Leadership & Inspiration

    To celebrate Professor Philippa Maddern’s life and the legacy of her inspirational leadership, the UWA Academic Staff Association Philippa Maddern Award pays tribute to exceptional academics.

    UWAASA invites members of the University’s alumni, UWA graduates and graduands, members of the Senate, staff past and present, UWA’s valued donors, corporate partners, volunteers and friends of the University, to recognise an academic for his/her positive influence on either themselves or the community.

    The recipients of the Awards should be exemplars of UWA’s motto “Seek Wisdom”.

    Award Categories • For an Academic still working at UWA • For an Academic no longer employed at or retired from UWA • Posthumous Award

    Eligibility for Nomination The award recognises the positive influences that academics have on students, The University of Western Australia and the wider community, particularly locally, but also on a national and global basis.

    Number of Awards 1. The UWAASA determines the number of awards in each category depending on the range

    and calibre of nominations. 2. The UWAASA reserves the right to not make an award in a category.

    Philippa Maddern (1953 – 2014) Winthrop Professor Philippa’s warmth, vision and broad cultural interests led to numerous collaborations with scholars in different fields, both at UWA and on the national and international scene. She was the founding director of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, Europe 1100-1800.

    Philippa ran the Centre of the History of Emotions exuding her collaborative ethos to bring together scholars from widely diverse disciplines and traditions, and by instilling a strong focus on its role in assisting younger scholars to get a start in the Centre through its postdoctoral fellowship scheme. She had a deep commitment to helping the new generation of humanities researchers and created the conditions for a temperate ecology that allowed all to flourish.

    The passing of fellow academic Professor Philippa Maddern (1953 – 2014) made the Committee determined to celebrate her life’s legacy of inspirational leadership. The Award is named in her honour and recognises the influence academics have on students and the community.

    Details of the Award and nomination forms will be available to download when nominations open in April 2019.
