The Academy's 51st Symposium & Fellowship events
Dates: 16-20 November 2020
Location: Online virtual event
Overview: In response to the restrictions and uncertainty brought on by COVID-19, the Australian Academy of the Humanities has decided to host the 51st Symposium as a series of free online webinars from 16-20 November 2020. The Symposium will focus on Australia’s cultural terrain and consider opportunities for innovative public policy and new creative practice to help strengthen national cultural life.
Annual Fellowship events: Section Meetings and the Annual General Meeting will also now be virtual, online events. The AGM is scheduled for Saturday 21 November 2020 and Section meetings will occur the week prior. Further details will be provided in due course. With great reluctance, Council has also decided to cancel the annual Fellows’ Dinner for 2020. We look forward to welcoming the Fellowship to an event in 2021 where we can host the Charter Book signing tradition and congratulate the recipients of the 2020 and 2021 awards. We will continue to monitor developments as the year progresses and should conditions allow, we will look to facilitate local Fellowship events
