Book designer and artist WH Chong, art historian Christopher Marshall and design expert Daniel Huppatz will talk us through the changing styles of the covers of one of Australia’s oldest literary journals, examining how they reflect the forming Australian national and artistic identity over time. The discussion is the first in a series of events commemorating Meanjin’s 80th anniversary, in conjunction with the University of Melbourne’s Archives and Special Collections department.
This discussion forms part of a project celebrating 80 Years of Meanjin, drawing upon items and records held within Archives and Special Collections. Archives and Special Collections, in collaboration with Meanjin, are presenting an online exhibition along with a short series of online conversations exploring ideas from the 80 year history of Meanjin.
This free Zoom event will be chaired by Meanjin editor Jonathan Green.
In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021 the Melbourne Graduate School of Education invites you to join editor Dr Marian Mahat and a panel of highly accomplished women to launch the book Women Thriving in Academia.
Providing international perspectives from Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Africa and the United Kingdom, and packed with real examples, success stories and practical advice from academic women at all levels, Women Thriving in Academia equips readers to understand how we can move higher education institutions beyond the constraints that have held highly competent women back for far too long. Chronicling both the challenges and opportunities posed by the higher education sector, and cutting across the fields of leadership, management and gender studies, the contributors offer a finely curated collection which empowers women not only to better navigate the academic world, but thrive in it.
This is a book every early career woman in academia needs to read.
