The ACHRC organises at least two events every year, for which no registration fee is required of members. These events give members access to the ACHRC’s collective expertise in running humanities research centres, navigating the Australasian research environment, and connecting researchers across institutions, disciplines and regions. We invite the Academy of Humanities and the Australian Research Council to both events to keep us apprised of recent trends and initiatives, funding opportunities and the ERA. The events also include research development workshops for ECRs, postdocs, and PhDs.
In the Annual Meeting, the ACHRC comes together to discuss broad challenges and opportunities for humanities research across the sector. It is a conference-style program combining our AGM with a series of presentations and panels on specific issues facing humanities centres.
Humanities in the Regions
The ACHRC is committed to supporting research centres in smaller, regional universities where the humanities may be under threat. The ‘Humanities in the Regions’ symposium invites regional centres to share their successful initiatives, discuss current developments from a regional perspective, and form networks in solidarity.
