Description: Our vision is to advance research in the creation, use, and cultural meaning of art in all its forms from ancient rock art until the digital age. The Australian Institute of Art History will adopt a cross-cultural perspective that builds upon its unique location south of the equator in the Asia Pacific Basin. It will welcome a variety of approaches to art history by historians, curators, critics, and scholars in related disciplines. It hopes to provide a think tank between museums and universities. The key areas of research activity will be Australian art, Asian Art, Contemporary Art, and European art. The stimulus for its foundation was the International Congress in the History of Art, held at the University of Melbourne in January 2008, Crossing Cultures: Conflict, Migration and Convergence.

Title: Melbourne Social Equity Institute

URL: http://www.socialequity.unimelb.edu.au/

Description: The MSEI supports interdisciplinary research on social equity issues across the full spectrum of social life including health, law, education, housing, work and transport. The Institute brings together researchers from across the University of Melbourne to identify unjust or unfair practices that lead to social inequity and work towards finding ways to ameliorate disadvantage. The MSEI was established in mid-2012 and is the newest of the University’s interdisciplinary research institutes. The Institute supports interdisciplinary research, facilitates researchers working with government and community organisations and helps with the dissemination and translation of research for public benefit. The University Council approved the establishment of the Institute in April 2012. Prior to this, a University forum in May 2009 canvassing staff support to establish a Social Equity Institute generated considerable interest and recommendations for building capacity in this area. Capitalising on this momentum, a Social Equity Reference Group was established in November 2009 to oversee initial consultation and planning for a Social Equity Institute. A review of research activity and extensive consultations undertaken by the Reference Group revealed substantial breadth and depth of expertise in social equity research across the University of Melbourne; and identified significant opportunities to harness distributed research activity to create innovative, high-impact research across the University and across disciplinary boundaries. Further momentum was generated by Social Equity theme researchers participating in the interdisciplinary seed funding offered in 2009, 2010 and 2011, with forty two researchers involved in securing eight grants, to catalyse activity in key areas. In addition, the collaborative activity already established by the University in its partnership with the Brotherhood of St Laurence demonstrated the opportunities for the MSEI to engage with similar organisations and NGOs.
