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.
Focusing on the variety of these values and how they relate to big issues in society, the Centre for Human and Cultural Values will launch in February next year with an impressive line-up of public and academic seminars, as well as the inaugural Australia Values Forum.
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 can be linked to values, to join the Centre. Some of the substantive areas that we are already working within include how values relate to sustainability and the environment, consumer behaviour, socialisation of children, and 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.
