The Institute for Culture and Society (ICS) is the largest dedicated concentration of socio-cultural researchers in Australia. Located in Parramatta at Western Sydney University, the Institute is renowned for its evidence-based interdisciplinary research into culture and society in a changing world. We champion collaborative, engaged research in the critical humanities and social sciences, attuned to the power of digital technologies, the importance of changing economies and the impact of ecological crisis. Our research distinguishes itself by recognising the social complexity of the local and global challenges faced by organisations and communities. We aim to offer the knowledge required to navigate this complexity through engaging the public to create positive change towards democracy and sustainability.
