The University of Western Australia's Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education is setting up a new centre to promote the understanding and appreciation of human and cultural values and their impact on important social issues.
The Centre for Human and Cultural Values will launch on 21 February 2018, with an impressive line-up of public and academic seminars, as well as the inaugural Values Impact Forum on 22 and 23 February.
Do you have expertise or interest in the study of values?
The Centre is keen to bring together scholars and students interested in human and cultural values theory, method, and applications. We are calling for academics at UWA with expertise in values, or substantive areas that may be linked to values, to join the Centre.
The Centre currently has six main research streams, including:
- Personal and Cultural Values
- Children's Values
- Societal Issues
- Prosocial Behaviour
- Consumer Behaviour
- The Workplace
Many academics are already involved through the Values Project, which was developed as part of an ARC Linkage Grant.
We aim to connect researchers with complementary expertise to work together to build teams of researchers around to help examine social issues.

To find out more, please attend one of our Centre for Human and Cultural Values information sessions.
