Thoughtlines

September 8 @ 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Presented by: Christine Dunstan Productions

EXCITING NEW SPEAKING SERIES TO LAUNCH IN REGIONAL AUSTRALIA

ThoughtLines, (www.thought-lines.com.au) a unique series of talks by some of Australia’s leading university-based academics, has been founded by publishing consultant Mary Cunnane and theatre producer Christine Dunstan, with the first series to debut in September 2019.

On the principle that the nation’s world-class universities form a treasure-trove of knowledge largely inaccessible to the public outside of capital cities, ThoughtLines has recruited three outstanding scholars in history, economics, and astronomy to deliver the inaugural presentations, tailored for general audiences, at insert venue and date here

Cunnane, who has worked with many academics in her publishing career, observed “There is so much fascinating  research done in our universities  in many areas, from science to philosophy and literature to economics, we think it is time to make it   available to the public in an accessible and engaging way.”  And Dunstan, an award-winning producer with extensive experience in regional Australia, noted “ThoughtLines offers regional audiences a capital-city experience – without the congestion!”

The three hour-long presentations, including audience Q&A, form a ‘day of learning for the fun of it’ and will be held on successive Sundays in September. Orange Civic Theatre on 8 September, West Gippsland Arts Centre on 15 September and Wagga Wagga Civic Theatre on 22 September.

The speakers for this premiere ThoughtLines season are:

Iain McCalman, Emeritus Professor of History and Co-Founder of the Environment Institute at Sydney University, speaking on Saving Ourselves from Ourselves: The Challenge of Human Intervention in Nature.
James Laurenceson, Acting Director of the Australia-China Relations Institute at University of Technology Sydney, China and Australia: Do We Need to Worry?
Lisa Kewley, Professor and Director at the ARC Centre of Excellence of All-Sky Astrophysics in 3D (ASTRO) at the Australian National University – Reaching for the Stars: An Australian Journey Through the Cosmos.
