The Humanities Research Centre

The Humanities Research Centre was established in 1972 as a national and international centre for excellence in the Humanities and a catalyst for innovative Humanities scholarship and research within the Australian National University.

Welcome to the Humanities Research Centre

Professor Will Christie, Head HRCYou will see under the information about the Humanities Research Centre (HRC) on this website that it was established in 1972 as a national and international centre for excellence and a catalyst for innovative and interdisciplinary scholarship within the ANU and beyond. The HRC was the first such Centre ever established in Australia, as it happens, and over the forty-odd years of its existence it has hosted, temporarily but highly productively, many of the world’s leading humanities scholars. The Friends of the HRC represent a selection of these, if you would like a sense of the Centre’s international reputation: distinguished scholars with a past association who have offered their support and advice on the conduct of the Centre.  » read more
