Social Sciences Week

is an annual event that celebrates and showcases the diverse range of social sciences disciplines and research in Australia.

9 – 15 September 2024

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.
