Sharing Our Common Wealth: Cultural Institutions

18-19 November, University of Adelaide

Convened by Professor Tim Murray FAHA

Cultural institutions play a vital role in building understanding and dialogue. They both enable and draw from the rich research by Australia's humanities researchers into our own history and culture, and that of other nations and peoples.

Key themes of the 2010 Symposium included issues surrounding the collection and representation of indigenous culture; access to culture of the Asia-Pacific region; festivals as cultural institutions; new developments in accessing culture and heritage in the digital age; scientific institutions and the humanities and access to culture through traditional and new forms of media.
