Event Description

Full Description:
Australian Images of China and Current Australia-China Relations
Professor Colin Patrick Mackerras Chairs: Professor Caitlin Byrne, Director, Griffith Asian Institute Associate Professor Andrew Bonnell, Research Director, Historical and Philosophical Inquiry, UQ APCCES, the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry of the University of Queensland and Griffith Asia Institute join hands in organizing this series of public lectures in honour of the late Hugh Alexander Dunn who made exemplary contributions to furthering Australia's relationship with China. A dear friend of both UQ and Griffith, Dunn set an example in bridging academic boundaries with the community through his application of knowledge in furthering the most relevant understanding of the past and the present. In this spirit, we choose the topics and their speakers to engage our community to address current issues that matter to us from geopolitical perspectives. After the inaugural lecture by Professor M K Wong who challenged the conventional dichotomy between the periphery and the core in Chinese politics, economy, and culture through examples from the history of Hong Kong, the forthcoming lecture by Professor Colin Mackerras AO is going to be even more directly relevant to the community. Professor Mackerras will discuss how Australian images of China affect the relationship and suggest possible new directions for its development.
