CALL FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST: Humanities in the Regions / Collaborating with Collecting and Cultural Institutions Symposium

10-11 May 2018, Launceston, Tasmania

A Collaboratory of the ACHRC and CAIA, University of Tasmania

In May 2018, ACHRC will bring together the energies of its two main member initiatives – Humanities in the Regions and Collaborating with Collecting and Cultural Institutions – for a joint symposium. Scheduled for May 10-11, 2018, and co-hosted by the UTAS Centre for Colonialism and its Aftermath (CAIA) at its Inveresk, Launceston, campus, this will be an exciting event showcasing best-practice achievements and innovations across these two initiatives.

The aim of the symposium is to give participants the opportunity to learn of current innovations in cross-sectoral research, meet with key representatives 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. The symposium aims to share and promote strategies for building strong research connections between Humanities researchers at all universities and cultural institutions.

The ACHRC focusses on sharing practical knowledge about humanities-based research across Australia and New Zealand. We now invite Expressions of Interest for presentations showcasing the work of UTAS researchers in the Humanities in collaboration with Tasmanian external partners. In particular, invitations are extended to those researchers working with collaborators from the GLAM sector (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums), to present their work as part of a range of workshops designed to collaboratively explore key issues and possible research trajectories. Consideration will also be given to relevant projects in the Social Sciences.

Presentations should be of no more than 20 minutes in length (including time for questions and discussions), and, focus on the pragmatics and practicalities of developing, undertaking, and sustaining cross-sectoral research projects in Tasmania. We encourage joint presentations with researchers and institutional partners.

Please forward a 250 word abstract to Robert Clarke or Robyn Greaves by Friday 2nd of February, 2018.
