ICS Participates in UWS Research Week Events

From 1 to 5 December, the University will hold its inaugural Research Week. With a series of events spread across the Greater Western Sydney region in a mix of on-campus and off-campus locations, Research Week is a great opportunity to see the varied and high-calibre research undertaken at UWS.

ICS is involved in two UWS Research Week events: This Sporting Life? The Place of Sport in Western Sydney and Mapping the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences in Australia.

This Sporting Life? The Place of Sport in Western Sydney

Date: Tuesday 2 December, 2014
Time: 5.30-8 pm
Location: Parramatta Leagues Club

Professor David Rowe from ICS will lead a discussion about his research, addressing the concerns of the current Australian Research Council project A Nation of 'Good Sports? Cultural Citizenship and Sport in Contemporary Australia. Participants will discuss the history, present and future of sport in the lives of people in both the Greater Western Sydney region and across Australia in a globalising world.

ICS School-based member Dr Jorge Knijnik and ICS PhD student Keith Parry will also present at the event along with representatives from the School of Science and Health and The MARCS Institute.

Mapping the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences

Date: Thursday 4 December, 2014
Time: 3-6 pm
Location: EZ.G.23, West Wing, Female Orphan School, Parramatta South Campus, UWS

Professor Graeme Turner will present the findings of the Mapping the Humanities and Social Sciences in Australia report. The report, based on a project conducted by the Australian Academy of the Humanities and the Academy of Social Sciences, provides the most comprehensive account of the HASS sector to date. The presentation will be followed by contributions from Professor Denise Meredyth and Professor Marian Simms who will bring an Australian Research Council perspective to bear on the report's findings. This event is hosted by ICS and convened by Professor Tony Bennett.
