Cultural Research for the 21st Century: Building Cultural Intelligence for a Complex World

Researcher: Professor Ien Ang (Australian Professorial Fellow)
Funding: Australian Research Council (opens in a new window)
Period: 2005-2010

Cultural complexity is one of the key characteristics of 21st century Australia. This is manifest in the rapid proliferation of social and cultural differences in society. By developing knowledge about the challenges posed by cultural complexity to the management of diversity, this project will assist public institutions and the broader community in building the cultural intelligence needed to address these challenges in more effective and innovative ways. In this way the project will showcase the practical benefits of cultural research – and the humanities and social sciences more generally – in the promotion of an innovation culture and economy.
