Su San Cohn elect­ed Hon­orary Fel­low’ to the Aus­tralian Acad­e­my of the Humanities


Australian Academy of the Humanities

Su San Cohn has been elect­ed to the Aus­tralian Acad­e­my of the Human­i­ties as an Hon­orary Fel­low, the high­est hon­our for achieve­ment in the human­i­ties in Australia.

In our 50th anniver­sary year, I am hon­oured to wel­come the new mem­bers of our Fel­low­ship, elect­ed in recog­ni­tion of their dis­tin­guished achieve­ment in the human­i­ties dis­ci­plines and their con­tri­bu­tion to Aus­tralian cul­tur­al life,” said Pres­i­dent of the Acad­e­my Pro­fes­sor Joy Damousi FAS­SA FAHA.

Those elect­ed come from a range of fields includ­ing archae­ol­o­gy, clas­sics, his­to­ry, phi­los­o­phy, media and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, reli­gion, Asian stud­ies, lit­er­a­ture, art his­to­ry, lin­guis­tics and musi­col­o­gy, as well as cre­ative prac­ti­tion­ers from across the arts and cul­ture sec­tor.” said Pro­fes­sor Damousi. They demon­strate the rich­ness and diver­si­ty of the human­i­ties in Aus­tralia today.”

Su san Cohn is one of Australia’s lead­ing design­er-mak­ers, work­ing across prac­tices of jew­ellery, met­al­work and instal­la­tion. Her work deals with chal­leng­ing themes includ­ing war, the fragili­ty of youth, AIDS pre­ven­tion, home­less­ness, and most recent­ly, the Dan­ish removal from refugees of their jew­ellery. Through her Work­shop 3000 (Mel­bourne) she has men­tored a gen­er­a­tion of Aus­tralian crafts­peo­ple. She has pub­lished three mono­graphs, held 20 exhi­bi­tions in Aus­tralia, Japan, UK and New Zealand, and curat­ed major shows for Design Muse­um Lon­don and Nation­al Gallery of Vic­to­ria. Her work is col­lect­ed inter­na­tion­al­ly. Cohn was for 10 years Trustee of the NGV.
