Learning, discussion and debate are on offer at Melbourne Free University, with two new courses just about to start for this term. We’d love to hear about similar organisations around the country; can you help?
Term two is about to begin at the Melbourne Free University and there are two great new courses from which to choose. There is no enrolment, no registration, no fee; anyone is free to come to any session.
On Language – Tuesdays, 6.30-8pm at Dexter bar/cafe, 123 Queens Parade, Clifton Hill
Speakers will explore the study of language from different perspectives, to highlight the centrality of language in the wide arrays of human endeavour. Sessions explore different languages and their structures, how they vary and change, how they are learnt and used in different societies and cultures, and the links between language and literature, rhetoric, and philosophy. This series is being coordinated by Dana Chahal of Victoria University.
Activists, Activism and Change – Thursdays, 6.30-8pm at The Alderman, 134 Lygon St East Brunswick.
How does what activists do matter? How does activism bring about social and political change? In this series a number of scholars bring their various perspectives to this very pressing issue. Graham Willett of Melbourne University is coordinating this series.
