Conversations Across the Creek is an initiative by the Humanities Research Centre (HRC) and the Research School of Chemistry (RSC) to provide a space for continuing dialogue among scientists, social scientists, and humanities scholars. Meetings are held monthly, with the aim of stimulating and unearthing research and teaching collaborations across the university.
Join us for the fourth Conversation for 2018, where three diverse scholars ‘cross’ Sullivan’s Creek, presenting on their latest research. The topic of this event is Creators of Culture: Scientists in Australian Fiction.
The speakers will explore the representations and dynamics of scientists in Australian fiction, and why they matter. Special guest: Peter Goldsworthy AM, award-winning poet and writer. There will also be a glassblowing performance by Mark Eliott. This event is free to attend but registration is esssential. Register now!
