Conversations Across the Creek

HRC Interdisciplinary Series

Sullivan’s Creek flows across our national university physically separating the sciences on one bank and the humanities and social sciences on the other. Or so it would seem. Conversations across the Creek is an initiative to provide a space for continuing dialogue among ANU scientists, social scientists, and humanities scholars – with the aim of providing food for thought (and lunch) and of stimulating and unearthing research and teaching collaborations across the University. Scholars from the humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences are invited to communicate their latest research to colleagues from all over the University.

 

Conversations across the Creek will return online in the second half of 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Watch this page and the HRC's homepage for details.
