Seminars in Melbourne


I’m now back in Melbourne after a very interesting and productive trip to Canberra and Sydney. It was a great chance to catch up with colleagues and discuss my research. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen. Next week I will take further advantage of being in Australia by giving two more seminars, this time in Melbourne. On Wednesday I’ll be speaking at La Trobe and talking about my recently published book, The Rise of Democracy. And on Thursday I’ll be returning to The University of Melbourne, where I did my undergraduate and masters degrees. There I’ll be talking about my new humility project. Information for the seminars is below.

  • ‘The continued rise of democracy? Notes on an uncertain future’, Wednesday 9 March 2016, 12:30 – 14:00, Common Room, Social Science, Level 3, Room 324, La Trobe University.
  • ‘Humility and democracy’, Thursday 10 March 2016, 17:00 – 18:30, Terrace Lounge, Walter Boas building, University of Melbourne.
