Welcome to the Understanding Cultures site

How cultures connect, and how those connections have shaped our world across the ages are key questions for anyone attempting to understand contemporary societies.

The themes ‘Understanding Cultures’ (Monash) and ‘Connecting Cultures’ (Warwick), both research priorities for the universities,  bring together the interests of scholars at Monash University and the University of Warwick  around mobility, intercultural studies, language, literature, cultural translation and cognate areas.

This website outlines collaborative activity in both research and education  between the Monash University of  the University of Warwick to date, as well as offering resources and information on related areas.

Research Priorities:
Monash University – Resilient Cultures and Communities
Monash Univerisity, Faculty of Arts – Understanding Cultures

University of Warwick – Global Research Priority: Connecting Cultures
