CMSA Workshops

The Centre for Modernism Studies Australia workshops are typically based around a short text or artwork, introduced by a specialist, and opened up for intensive discussion around questions of research approach, method, strategies, tactics, and theory. Short written pieces are distributed to participants before the meeting. These workshops are well-attended and registration is essential to assure a place in the room.

Please contact Mark Steven at for more information.

All workshops run from 4pm through 6pm on Wednesday afternoons. Specific dates and rooms will be announced at least two weeks ahead of each workshop.
