Deanne Gannaway is a researcher and teacher at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. She has conducted a number of large-scale national research projects investigating the contemporary Bachelor of Arts. Her current research focuses on understanding the role played by the liberal arts in the current social and economic context. She is regularly invited to speak with curriculum renewal teams working on BA programs and to act as a reviewer of BA curricula. As an Australian Learning and Teaching Fellow for 2017, she conducted a program of activities that connected students, teachers and academic leaders of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HASS) disciplines to re-imagine the future of the Australian Bachelor of Arts (BA) – the means by which most Australian undergraduate students engage with HASS disciplines.
