IT'S Social Sciences Week! Each September events are held across Australia to provide an insight into the impact of the social sciences on our lives.
It is an initiative of several of Australia's Social Sciences associations and is co-ordinated by the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia.
Charles Sturt University plays a major role in Social Sciences Week which, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has to be done a little differently this year
With most events moving online this actually provides everyone with the opportunity to get involved. Find out more at https://socialsciences.org.au/socialsciencesweek/
This Friday at 5.30pm, 2MCE will be broadcasting a special program for Social Sciences Week presented by staff from the University's School of Information Studies.
This program will feature a discussion on empowering access to information for all members of society. Researchers from CSU's School of Information Studies will share insight from their projects like supporting libraries in prisons and how the Open Access movement is changing the face of information.
Hear why libraries are highly prized and beneficial for many of Australia's prison inmates.
You can also be part of the conversation during the program and get involved in a Q&A via the School of Information Studies Facebook page facebook.com/SISCSU.
ACROSS the week, a great way to keep up with the latest news from around the region and around the country is to tune into Community Drive each weekday at 4pm. Hosted by a team of dedicated 2MCE volunteer presenters, each day you'll hear a round up of national news, the latest online gems found by our Digital Culture Vulture and interviews with local people in the news.
