This looks like an interesting series of lectures here in Melbourne over the next few months:
Key Thinkers is a series of public lectures held every Thursday evening during the teaching semester. Academics from The University of Melbourne, with occasional guests, will give an hour-long talk on internationally well-known thinkers whose works have inspired their own. This will be followed by thirty minutes of questions and discussion. This is a cross-faculty initiative and the thinkers are chosen from
very diverse ﬁelds and disciplines. The lecturers are all highly experienced presenters and the content of the lectures will be aimed at a lay audience but with enough complexity to also appeal to more specialised listeners.
The programme can be downloaded here. Lectures of interest to readers of this blog might include those on Plato (April 9th); Alain Badiou (7th May); Judith Butler (21st May). All lectures take place on Thursday evenings; details on the flyer.
