Humanities in the region symposium
The Centre for 21st Century Humanities and the School of Humanities and Social Science will host the Australasian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres’ Humanities in the Regions symposium on 30 – 31 May at New Space.
Held each year in a regional centre, the gathering provides an opportunity to share knowledge around conceiving and conducting humanities research in non-metropolitan locations.
Symposium co-organiser and Centre for 21st Century Humanities member Dr Julie McIntyre said this year's theme is Renewal. This reflects the change brought to inner Newcastle by New Space. Symposium presenters and delegates will discuss and debate contemporary developments in fields of regional humanities research including how to work across traditional disciplinary boundaries.
“This event is built around the experiences of regional academics in securing research grant income and partnerships. We will examine how to build research strength through connecting with other scholars and partners in the cultural sector and other industries,” Dr McIntyre said.
