In 2021, the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia marks its 50th anniversary.

Join an expert panel for an online discussion on ‘The Social Future of Australia’.

This milestone provides an opportunity to celebrate the significant contributions of the Academy and its Fellows to the advancement of the social sciences. It also invites reflection on the value and future of the social sciences in contemporary Australian life.

The Academy will explore these themes in 2021 in a special 50th anniversary online symposium. Registration for this event is free.

With over 50 speakers, 6 presentation sessions, and 3 roundtable sessions, the Symposium will provide contemporary and provocative commentary on issues important to society as well as to each of our disciplines. Questions and comments from the online audience will be worked into the program.

Topics include meaningful reconciliation with Indigenous Australia; international relationships in a rapidly changing world;  education and health; productivity and innovation; equity and justice.
