About Humanities 21
Humanities 21 is an independent group formed out of concern for the continuing decline in resources allocated to English, History, Classics and Philosophy across Australian schools and universities, and the undervaluing of humanities graduates in the business world. We aim to help the Humanities receive a better hearing from educational funders, granting bodies and philanthropists, based on a greater recognition of their contribution to society. By promoting public programs and events in Melbourne through Humanities 21 eNews, and offering in-house seminars to Melbourne businesses, we’re working to bring humanities academics and research closer to the community.
