Interpretation, Method and Critique (IMC) Network and Research Cluster

The aim of this collaborative cross-disciplinary network is to raise the profile of Interpretive Social Science at the ANU, within Australia and internationally. We aim to create collaboration opportunities for scholars and build capacity for interpretivist approaches among graduate and undergraduate students.  We do this by organising our own events and promoting the events of others, through national and international partnerships and affiliations, through media initiatives like podcasts, and through graduate and undergraduate courses and capacity building initiatives.
