'Humanities and...' Conference

Welcome to the site for the 2020 Conference and Annual Meeting of the Australasian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres, hosted by the State Library of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

The theme for the 2020 Annual Meeting is Humanities and….

Through this theme we will examine the various ways in which the humanities contribute to a wide variety of fields including medicine, law and the environment. Humanities and… is also about the humanities and the future and, critically, humanities and everyone; how the humanities enrich our lives.

This event is open to academics, students, independent scholars, those working across the cultural sector and anyone with an interest in the important roles that the humanities play in the world today.

This meeting is planned as a three-day event, commencing with a Public Lecture on the evening of Wednesday 2 December 2020 at the State Library of New South Wales.

This will be followed by keynote addresses, panel sessions and lightning talks over Thursday 3 December and Friday 4 December 2020.

Wednesday
Wednesday 2 December 2020 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
