Australian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres' 'The Humanities and Well Being' Conference
Dates: 2-3 December 2019
Location: Wellington, New Zealand
Overview: The 2019 ACHRC Annual meeting returns to New Zealand, this time heading to Wellington, for two days of discussion about the practicalities of Humanities, Creative Arts and Social Sciences research in a world on fire. To acknowledge this and the role we as humanities researchers can play in responding to current conditions, we meet with the theme of The Humanities and Well Being. Panels and speakers will address questions such as how has the academic life changed over the last decades, what is the connection between the value of the humanities and the public good, what does a “wellbeing budget” as released by the New Zealand government in 2019 do for the place of arts, culture and humanities in the world?
