PROGRAM: http://dh2015.org/public-event

The Australasian Consortium of Humanities Research Centres (ACHRC) invites
you to the free public event, ‘Building Communities and Networks in the
Humanities’, which has been organised to coincide with the international
Digital Humanities 2015 conference at the University of Western Sydney.

20 leading experts from 10 countries will discuss new opportunities for the
arts, humanities and social sciences in the digital era, addressing key
questions such as ‘How can we build communities for the humanities across
digital and non-digital platforms?’ and ‘What is the most important
contribution digital humanities can make in supporting arts and humanities
scholarship regionally and globally?’

This event is sponsored by the Australasian Consortium of Humanities
Research Centres (ACHRC) with the support of the Australian Academy of the
Humanities, the Council for the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences
(CHASS), centerNet, the International Digital Humanities Training Network,
and the UWS Digital Humanities Research Group.

ACHRC is a network for groups engaged in Humanities-based research. Our aim
is to connect Humanities researchers and centres, both within the
Australasian region and internationally, to promote relationships with
cultural institutions and sector representative bodies in the wider
community, and to advocate issues relevant to Humanities researchers.

This is a free, open and public event. No RSVP is required.
