Public Culture Cluster

The Public Culture Cluster (PCC) is a range of research centres, institutes and networks, comprising groups of people, often from different disciplines, working together to build communities of practice across specific research areas. These may be long-term ongoing collaborations or convened around specific projects. A particular purpose of the Public Culture Cluster (PCC) is to facilitate its members contribute meaningfully to public culture, to ensure that the humanities and social sciences take their place at the centre of civil society.


  • Generate critical mass focused on building networks, capacity, and shared resources to enable interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary team and project work across CASS Centres and institutional boundaries.
  • Enhance the profile and visibility of our research by creating a coordinated platform for public engagement, impact, and mutually beneficial translational research processes across CASS.
  • Establish inclusive collaborative public programs across research centres and existing networks.
  • Provide support, feedback, and capacity building for areas that wish to develop new ANU Centres in CASS, and help with associated matters like strategic plan writing.

The PCC will meet its goals through collaboration with all members and in association with the ACHRC and other external networks to maximise and extend opportunities for all PCC members .

Member and network information coming soon.
