PARADISEC is a consortium of three universities: the Universities of Sydney, the University of Melbourne, and the Australian National University. Operational functions are distributed across the participating campuses.
PARADISEC is directed by a Steering Committee of representatives from these three universities, with Dr Nick Thieberger as the PARADISEC Director, and Prof Linda Barwick as the Sydney Director.
At the University of Sydney PARADISEC is hosted by the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, our University of Melbourne base is in the School of Languages and Linguistics, and at the Australian National University PARADISEC is hosted by the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific.
We have also digitised the fieldnotes of Arthur Capell, Stephen A. Wurm and Calvin Roesler and these are publicly available through the website. See http://www.paradisec.org.au/collections/
We have distributed copies of recordings to the Vanuatu Cultural Centre, the University of New Caledonia, the Institute of Papua New Guinea Studies, the Solomon Islands National Museum and to Rapa Nui.
