  2014 CHASS National Forum, 8-9 Oct, Melbourne

The 2014 CHASS National Forum was held at the University of Melbourne's Woodward Conference Centre on 8-9 October. With the over-arching theme ‘Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences and the Public Good’, it brought together eminent speakers, policy makers, political leaders and performers to share results, ideas, and to build coalitions.

For the first time, CHASS awarded Australia Prizes for achievements in HASS subject areas at a glittering ceremony on 8 October at Parliament of Victoria. These cash prizes for authors, performers, policy makers and students honoured those who have advanced the HASS areas, as well as drew publicity to the value of HASS.

We would like to thank all the speakers, delegates, invited guests, jury members, sponsors, volunteers and others involved for their support of the National Forum and the Australia Prizes Dinner.
