Event description

Description


Provocations is an exciting new public forum tackling controversies in the arts and humanities, hosted by the J.M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice.

In the first event in this series, Professor of migrant and post-colonial literature, Sneja Gunew (University of British Columbia), will be joined by Dr Mark Davis (Melbourne University) and award-winning writers Michelle Cahill and Brian Castro to mount a challenge to Australian critical orthodoxies. Provocations #1 asks: Are cultural institutions receptive to new voices or are they living in a literary echo-chamber? How do elites govern the cultural field? Are we all inadvertently cultural gate-keepers?

A day-long symposium (10am-4pm) will be followed by a free public forum in the evening (5-7pm). Click the Tickets link above to book for the symposium and/or the forum.

Join us for what is sure to be a lively debate.
