DNS XVIII 2022 is chiefly sponsored by the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Australian Catholic University, and will be held on the Fitzroy Campus of ACU in Victoria, Australia. We acknowledge that the IHSS stands on Wurundjeri land, which was never ceded to settler colonists. We recognise that the conference will be hosted on unceded Wurundjeri land and offer our respects to Wurundjeri Elders past and present. We also extend particular respect to First Nations delegates.

We are grateful to the Chancellery of ACU for its contribution to the conference, and to Professor Joy Damousi, Director of the IHSS.
