Congress of HASS - November 25th - December 2nd, 2022

Congress of HASS

CHASS is very excited to be bringing together many of the annual discipline association conferences in the HASS sector under one banner. At this stage we have 21 associations signed up for the inaugural Congress of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences to be held in Melbourne in and around the week of November 25th - December 2nd, 2022. This will be the major initiative for CHASS and hopefully the major showcase for the sector in 2022. More details to follow but pencil it into your diaries now.

We welcome and encourage you to share the event poster.

The Congress of HASS is a child friendly event:
