Head, Humanities Research Centre

Kylie Message-Jones Professor of Public Humanities


The Humanities Research Centre’s mission is to advance the production, dissemination and public translation of outstanding and innovative, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary scholarship in the humanities across The Australian National University, Australia, and internationally.

Since 1972 the HRC has been a catalyst for innovative advanced research in and across the humanities globally. Every year we host a highly distinguished annual Visiting Fellowship Program and a range of conferences, workshops, collaborations, and other events related to an annual theme. We engage with and support all humanities related research disciplines, fields, and questions and are committed to facilitating public engagement with humanities knowledge and scholarship.

The HRC works closely, collaboratively, and extensively with research centres, museums, galleries, libraries, and archives in Australia and globally, as well as with researchers and in sectors that cross disciplinary distinctions across the humanities, creative arts, social sciences, and technological and natural sciences.
