The Conversation on the year that changed us
Please note: This is an online event.
In January 2020, Australia went from battling one of its worst-ever bushfire seasons to preparing for COVID-19 to hit its shores. What ensued was crisis: a pandemic, political upheaval, an international human rights movement, global recession, and localised emergencies dwarfed by a world spinning on an axis of turmoil.
From the Conversation – 2020: The Year That Changed Us is a collection of essays that explore these events and where they may lead society. Managing editor of The Conversation Misha Ketchell joins us online to discuss the book and the ideas it raises.
This is an online event and free to attend. Please book here, and you will be sent a unique Zoom link.
