CHASS News: August 2014
Recognition, promotion and fun are the reasons the Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (CHASS) established the CHASS Australia Prizes. These prizes are for books and distinctive work in the arts and social sciences. There are prizes for students as well as professionals, and leadership is recognised in its own prize. The prizes will be awarded at the CHASS Forum on 8 October in Melbourne. There will certainly be a party, but more importantly, there will be an opportunity to celebrate, promote and recognise the work of artists, humanists and social scientists- those who help us to understand ourselves and our place in the universe.
