Symposium Newsletter (1995-2008)

Recently published, Challenging (the) Humanities is a collection of essays from the Australian Academy of the Humanities’ 43rd Annual Symposium, edited by Fellow Tony Bennett. If you are interested in purchasing this publication you can download an order form here [.pdf 762kb].

Post-humanism, the material turn, financial crises, Indigenous demands, the limits of critique. How are the humanities responding to these challenges? How are they re-thinking their social roles? How are they re-thinking their relations to other disciplines? And how are they challenging those disciplines? This collection brings together leading scholars from Australia and internationally to probe these key questions.
