Institute for Culture and Society

The Institute for Culture and Society (ICS) within the University of Western Sydney (UWS) was launched in 2012. ICS is a major national and international Institute for the pursuit of engaged interdisciplinary cultural and social research. Rated 5 ("well above world standard") for Cultural Studies in the 2010 Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) rankings, the Institute coordinates interdisciplinary cultural research across the humanities and social sciences and connects Australian cultural and social research to relevant research overseas, particularly in Asia.

With the continuation of the Australian Research Council's Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) scheme in 2015 (see the website: http://www.arc.gov.au/ncgp/decra.htm) and a University commitment of significant new funding, ICS is investing in leading cultural and social researchers from Australia and overseas by supporting innovative and outstanding DECRA proposals from applicants up to 5 years post-PhD.
