The Academy’s 2022 Annual Events will be held from 15 – 29 November 2022 in Melbourne and online. Most of the annual events, including the symposium, AGM and panel meetings, will be hybrid, allowing for in-person and digital participation. Register here to attend the AGM and Panel Meetings.
The annual symposium, ‘Democracy: Risk | Relevance | Revival’, will be held as part of the inaugural Congress of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. The congress, coordinated by the Council of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences, will bring together 21 disciplinary associations in Melbourne between 24 November – 3 December for their respective annual conferences.
This hybrid symposium will explore developments and challenges to democracy in Australia and abroad, and the ways in which new thinking, social trends, geopolitics and technology are changing how society engages with its leadership and its future. With sessions on democracy in the digital era, academic freedom, rising distrust in politics, constitutional change, the role of social movements, and more, this two-day symposium is sure to be an engaging and conversation-provoking event. Register here to attend the Symposium, New Fellows’ Presentations, Cunningham Lecture, and Annual Fellows Dinner.
