Apologies for Cross Posting

Hi everyone,

I suspect this will only be of interest to those of you based in Sydney
and I apologise for the extremely short notice!

As part of the annual CONNECT Conference put on by the Sydney University
Postgraduate Representative Association (SUPRA) there is a free keynote
session on tonight (Thursday 27th September).

Dr Paul Magee, Dr Thalia Anthony and Professor Christopher Nash will all
be speaking on the role of Public Intellectualism in our society.

The session starts at 6 in the Main Quad of the University of Sydney and
drinks and nibbles will be served from 5 pm.

There is another keynote tomorrow (Friday 28th September) featuring
Kerry Nettle, Dylan Welch and me in my role as SUPRA's Co-President.  
That session will look at the Politics of Higher Education. It starts at
4 and will be followed by drinks and nibbles in the University's
historic Nicholson Museum.

For more information go to www.supra.usyd.edu.au/connect.

I hope to see some of you there.

Kind Regards
