Humanities and Social Sciences Node Meeting
The first SIBRN HASS Node Meeting will explore potential research interests and collaborations of humanities and social sciences (HASS) colleagues, in the broad area of emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and related biosecurity.
The HASS node is a part of the newly funded Sydney Infectious Diseases Research Network (SIBRN). This is a research network, funded by the University's SyReNS scheme, working for the next two years to build interdisciplinary research in this area. SIBRN is closely related to, and comes out of, the Sydney Emerging Infections and Biosecurity Institute (SEIB).
The purpose of the meeting is to have the opportunity to meet and interact with colleagues in humanities and social sciences, across a wide range of disciplines and fields, whose work may interact with the focus of the network.
The HASS Node Convenors (SIBRN) are Professor Gerard Goggin (Department of Media & Communications) and Dr Adam Kamradt-Scott (International Security Studies). The Humanities and Social Sciences are at the forefront of the University's vision and goals at present to forge innovative, interdisciplinary research that tackles problems of health and wellbeing in internationally significant ways. A number of you may already be involved with the Charles Perkins Centre, and we see the SIBRN/SEIB as being an another major opportunity to develop humanities and social sciences approaches as an integral part of the university's work.
The meeting will be held on main campus as follows:
Date: Tuesday 6 November
Time: 12pm - 2pm.
Venue: Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Conference Room, via Door N300 Quadrangle A14 (adjacent to the General Lecture Theatre) || view map
