npc_logo_printThe Australian Academy of the Humanities and the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia are delighted to announce the launch of the ‘Mapping the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences in Australia’ report at the National Press Club of Australia on Tuesday 28 October 2014.

Australia’s Chief Scientist, Professor Ian Chubb AC, will officially launch the report and introduce Professor Graeme Turner FAHA, who will give the Press Club address and present the report’s main findings.

The report provides the most comprehensive account of the humanities, arts and social sciences (HASS) sector to date. It outlines what the sector is currently delivering to the nation; how well HASS is positioned to respond to the changing needs of the nation in the future, and where we might look to further capitalise upon its potential. The Mapping HASS report serves as a companion volume to the ‘Health of Australian Science’ report, published by the Office of the Chief Scientist in 2012.

The project is a collaboration between the two Academies, with support from the Commonwealth Department of Industry and the Office of the Chief Scientist.
