Symposia, lectures & events

Our events – a long tradition


    • Events for 2020

      In light of the broad and deep impacts of COVID-19, we have decided to postpone all Academy events through to early September 2020. The 51st Symposium will be held as a series of free online webinars from 16-20 November 2020. Further announcements will be made over the coming months.

    • A national focal point

      Our Symposium is the premier event for the Australian humanities community — celebrating the richness, diversity and impact of work in the humanities. It has been held every year since the Academy was established in 1969.

    • Open to all

      Our Symposium and special events are open to all. They bring together a large cross-section of Fellows, scholars, early career researchers and representatives from government, education, peak bodies, industry, media and the community.
