dreamingWe bring you news of the Future Fellowships scheme. It claims to support research in areas of critical national importance by giving outstanding researchers incentives to conduct their research in Australia.

With this in mind, here’s a five year grant from 2014 that has been awarded $843,142.00.

Wowzer! It really must be critically and nationally important to warrant nearly one million dollars worth of funding. What could it be?

Well…WasteWatch is here to tell you that this particular project “aims to uncover the development of dream interpretation from Classical Antiquity through early Christianity to early Islam and give an understanding of how dreams and visions were used as tools of religious control and as justification of violence against other religions”.

A highly interesting research project but by 2018 what will be the outcome of the grant?  In the current climate our tax dollars may be better spent trying to work out what young radicals in the 21st century are dreaming of when they leave our shores.
