ANU School of Computer Science Joint Jubilee Fellowships
The Australian Dictionary of Biography, Australia’s largest and most successful cooperative research enterprise in humanities and social sciences, supports the ANU School of Computer Science‘s Joint Jubilee Fellowships (JJF) program. The JJFs are fixed term appointments funded by the School of Computing together with partner schools from ANU colleges. They aim to foster interdisciplinary collaborations that develop new ideas and address grand challenges at the interface of advanced computing, science, and society.
Reimagining the Australian Dictionary of Biography
The ADB, hosted by the National Centre of Biography in the School of History, CASS—as the largest and most successful cooperative research enterprise in the humanities and social sciences in Australia—is inscribed into the very fabric, identity and rationale of our national university, founded with its specific nation-building charter to encourage, and provide facilities for, research and postgraduate study, both generally and in relation to subjects of national importance to Australia. The ANU has hosted the ADB, for six decades. The ADB went online in 2006; its platform, the Biographical Information Management System, now needs redevelopment to expand data retrieval, visualisation, and networking. In the process, the ADB needs to be reimagined no less.
