  2014 CHASS National Forum, 8-9 Oct, Melbourne

The 2014 CHASS Forum will be held at the University of Melbourne's Woodward Conference Centre on 8-9 October. It will bring together an international group of speakers, policy makers, political leaders and performers to share results, ideas, and to build coalitions.

For the first time, CHASS will award yearly Australia Prizes for achievements in HASS subject areas. These cash prizes for authors, performers, policy makers and students will honour those who have advanced the HASS areas as well as draw publicity to the value of HASS, and will be awarded at a gala dinner on 8 October.

  CHASS News: August 2014

Newsletter Issue #79

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.
