Annual Theme Visiting Fellowships

The Humanities Research Centre (HRC) was established in 1972 as a national and international centre for excellence in the humanities and as a catalyst for innovative humanities scholarship and research within the Australian National University. The HRC interprets the ‘humanities’ generously, recognising that new methods of theoretical enquiry have done much to break down the traditional distinction between the humanities, the creative arts, and the social sciences. It also recognises the importance of establishing a dialogue between the humanities and the natural and technological sciences. One of its central functions is to bring to Australia scholars of international standing who will provoke fresh ideas both within and beyond the academic community. 

Our theme for 2023 will be announced in mid-2022.
