Carrying on the productive discussions initiated at the GLAMorous Humanities, and being reminded of the collecting and cultural archiving that has been carried out in regional settings as well as in major centres of Australia, the Australian Consortium of Humanities Research Centre (ACHRC) plans to bring together the energies of its two main member initiatives – Humanities in the Regions and Collaborating with Collecting and Cultural Institutions – for a joint meeting. Scheduled for May 10-11, 2018, and co-hosted by UTAS’ Centre for Colonialism and its Aftermath (CAIA) at its Launceston campus, this will be an exciting event showcasing best-practice achievements and innovations across these two initiatives, but focusing in particular on exploring some of the rich synergies apparent between them.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear about current innovations across and between both initiatives, meet with key representatives from each initiative and the GLAM sector (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums), and participate in a range of workshops designed to collaboratively explore key issues and possible research trajectories. With an aim of sharing and promoting strategies for building strong research connections between Humanities researchers at all universities and cultural institutions, and hosted by CAIA – which is well-known for its interaction with the local community as well as with heritage and tourism industries – this event is a must for active researchers in the Humanities and Creative Arts tertiary sector and for GLAM sector representatives.
