The social sciences are key to understanding humanity, society and the institutions which govern our daily lives.
An initiative of several Australian social science associations and coordinated by the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, Social Sciences Week will grow again in 2024 with a combination of in-person, online and hybrid events.

Registration for the events in the 2024 program will open early in the new year. We welcome virtual, in-person and hybrid events. In 2023 we had improv theatre, debates and comedy events as well as lectures, workshops and more. We welcome all social science themed events and participants are encouraged to be as creative as possible.
89 events with 30 partner organisations online and across the country saw the social sciences everywhere!
Australia’s top social researchers and commentators bring fun and engaging social science to life with over 80 events as part of SSW2023.
How can we be sure emerging technologies serve us as humans rather than the other way around?
