How will the Australian Government’s proposed 113% fee increase to study humanities and social science subjects at university impact emerging workers in galleries, libraries, archives and museums (the GLAM sector)? Will these changes lower demand for, and put at risk, the future of humanities and social science subjects? UQ Humanities and Social Sciences Executive Dean Professor Heather Zwicker, UQ Anthropology Museum Director Michael Aird, and UQ Museum Studies Program Director Eve Haddow for a lively discussion around the future of the GLAM sector.

About We Need To Talk About...

Our informal conversation series We Need To Talk About… is back!

This series brings together brilliant UQ people to discuss urgent topics in art, politics and the news. We Need To Talk About... will interrogate notions of common purpose and collective action in this time of self-isolation - tying to ideas also explored in UQ Art Museum's current exhibition program Union.
