A just and cultured world

Cultural research enhances our understanding of, and provides new frameworks for, the analysis of humanity and its history, ideas, cultures, languages and social structures. It is also particularly important to developing interdisciplinary solutions to complex challenges such as climate change, resource management, health and welfare.

We have a vision for a just and cultured world, driven by innovative and challenging research. We are looking for motivated individuals to join us and look at changes in global economic power, industry and technological convergence, a changing future workforce, resource scarcity, increased urbanisation and a changing health economy, to name a few.

Some projects our teams at UWA are working on include exploring the Dampier Archipelago for evidence of Australia’s earliest settlers, the history of emotions and effects of European history on today’s society and much more.
