  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.

  CHASS News: December 2014

Newsletter Issue #82

To explore the relationships between HASS research and industry growth, CHASS's theme for the 2015 will be "Convergence Innovation: Inspiring a Creative Australia". We will be looking at the intersections between HASS research and the Industry Growth Centres during the year. We will take this as an opportunity to demonstrate the relevance of our work to our country's future. The 2015 National Forum, which will be held in Melbourne on 15 and 16 October, will bring this work together to produce a blueprint for how Australia can grow and prosper creatively, sustainably and equitably. If you have suggestions, proposals or would like to get involved, please let us know.
