Australian Identity in a Changing Landscape: A conversation at Cinema Nova

Cinema Nova, 380 Lygon Street, Carlton

We are thrilled to announce a panel that will expand the way you think about Australia and its place in the world as we launch Australian Foreign Affairs Issue 5. This fifth issue of the journal Australian Foreign Affairs examines Australia’s struggle to define its identity and place in Asia as it balances its historic ties to the West with its geography.

Join us to be part of a necessary conversation about Australia’s past, present and future.
