The crisis surrounding COVID-19 has enabled us to rethink a range of assumptions about education. It has shown various new ways in which the world is globally interconnected and interdependent, even when the physical mobility of people is restricted. Various cross-border communication systems have enabled people to stay in touch with friends and family, and have even consolidated, extended, and developed relationships in spaces that are appositely characterised as transnational. As new technological innovations continue to emerge, new cultural formations have become possible. In this talk, Professor Emeritus Fazal Rizvi will consider some of the possibilities for intercultural learning that these developments have opened in schools and communities, in the production of creative and dynamic cultural practices.
The University of Melbourne Regiment will continue its longstanding tradition of holding an Anzac Day Dawn Service on campus at the Cenotaph opposite the South Lawn this coming Anzac Day, Sunday 25 April, from 5.45am.
Although we particularly remember the impact of WWI and WWII on this day, all members of the community are invited to attend to reflect on lives lost in or changed forever by war.
Booking is not required, although all attendees will be required to scan a QR code as per the Victorian Government’s COVIDSafe rules.
