Join us as world-leading technologist and anthropologist Professor Genevieve Bell (ANU/Intel) interrogates what it means to be human, and Australian, in a digital world for this year's live Boyer Lecture, at ABC Ultimo Centre, Sydney.
Each year since 1959, the ABC has sparked national discussion about critical ideas with the Boyer Lectures. In October, ANU Distinguished Professor and Intel Senior Fellow Professor Genevieve Bell continues this proud tradition and you're invited.
30 years ago, Professor Bell left Australia to study anthropology in America. That journey took her to the heart of Silicon Valley, where she led Intel’s first user experience research and development lab and most recently served as their chief futurist. Her job was to help invent the future and ensure that it was shaped by lived experience.
Professor Bell has been at the epicentre of the biggest set of digital transformations in our lifetime, and now she’s returned home to Australia, because there are some urgent conversations we need to have about the role of technology in building our future.

Professor Bell will deliver the fourth and final instalment of the Lectures at the live event on October 21.
