The Australian Academy of the Humanities' publications include edited collections, the annual Proceedings of the Academy, the annual issue of our journal, Humanities Australia, monographs and occasional papers.

Humanities Australia

The Academy's flagship journal, Humanities Australia, showcases the richness and variety of research in the humanities in Australia.


The Proceedings, an annual record of the Academy's activities ceased publication in 2010.

Edited Collections

The Edited Collections include collected papers from annual symposia.

Language Atlases

The production of The Language Atlas of the Pacific Area and The Language Atlas of China was supported by the Union Académique Internationale and the UNESCO International Council of Philosophy and Humanistic Studies.


The obituaries of deceased Fellows are published in the Academy's Annual Report, and are available online. Please note that obituaries only become available online after they have been published in the Annual Report.

Symposium Newsletter (1995-2008)

The triannual Symposium newsletter was discontinued in late 2008 and replaced by a new annual journal, Humanities Australia. Symposium featured articles written by Fellows of the Academy, guest contributors and staff. Electronic copies of Symposium are available by contacting the Secretariat.


Published in 2009, the Macquarie PEN Anthology of Australian Literature has meant the completion of a truly landmark project, the aim of which was to make available to students and general readers a representative selection of the best and most significant Australian writing from colonial times to the present.

The Australian Academy of the Humanities lent its support to the project which was led by Macquarie University and International PEN, the world’s largest and only UN-accredited association of writers, through its Sydney PEN.
