News from ADI
People, Place and Heritage is one of four research streams in the Alfred Deakin Institute. Our researchers include historian, anthropologists, museum and heritage scholars, and others interested in the relationships between people, place and the past, and in what it is to be human in the present. The PPH stream supports research from diverse humanities and social science perspectives to address questions of how these relationships change across space, time, and material form. Support includes a work-in-progress seminar series, collegial events and networks, and funding for collaborative research activities. ADI members are welcome to affiliate with multiple streams, as appropriate to their interests. Anyone interested in being added to the email list for PPH can contact email@example.com.
