  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.

We need you to become involved in promoting HASS. One way to do this is through becoming involved in HASS activities. For example, this year CHASS will offer the CHASS Australia Prizes, which are not only designed to honour high achieving HASS writers, practitioners and students but also to bring public attention to the value of CHASS. Nominations are now open, and we encourage you to become involved by submitting applications.
