Celebrating 50 Years
of the Academy of
the Social Sciences
50 years of the Academy
In 2021, the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia will mark its 50th anniversary.
This milestone provides an opportunity to celebrate the significant contributions of the Academy and its Fellows to the advancement of the social sciences. It also invites reflection on the value and future of the social sciences in contemporary Australian life.
The Academy will explore these themes in 2021 through a 50th anniversary program of events and research, including the Academy’s Annual Symposium and State of the Social Sciences project.
Celebrating 50 Years will not only acknowledge the legacy of the social sciences, but it will also consider the invaluable role the social sciences can play in Australia’s social future.
