The second event in our newest Humanities Research Centre series, Ad Hominem.
An ad hominem argument interrogates not the argument itself, but the person advancing it. With this series, we take up that idea in a more positive way –– 'ad hominem' is a series of quirky, research-led conversations getting at the stories behind the HERDC points. Each evening event will feature three of ANU's most interesting thinkers reflecting on the personal aspects of their research: why particular questions fascinate them, how they pursue them, and how pursuing them has shaped their lives.
Join us at University House for a glass of wine and an hour of lively conversation, as our speakers - Assoc. Prof. Simone Dennis, Dr Katie Sutton, and Dr Robert Wellington - explore life inside and beyond the academy.
This event is free and all are welcome.
