The 9th Annual Conference will be hosted by the Institute for Humanities & Social Sciences, Australian Catholic University, Melbourne, 12-13 December, 2022.

This will be an in-person conference, with proceedings held at the Institute for Humanities & Social Sciences’ facilities in the Fitzroy neighbourhood near the Melbourne CBD.

Melbourne is the capital of the southeastern Australian state of Victoria. The city is home to many of the best-known cultural institutions in the nation, including the National Gallery of Victoria and  Royal Exhibition Building. It has been recognised as a UNESCO City of Literature and a global centre for street art, live music and theatre. Its laneways, restaurants and coffee are icons, and it is only a short trip to the famous Yarra Valley wineries.
