Rethinking China Lecture Series

Rethinking China with Louise Edwards

 

China Matters is pleased to announce that with the easing of COVID restrictions “Rethinking China” with Louise Edwards will go ahead on 9 December.

Our in-person Sydney Lecture Series: Rethinking China features speakers of diverse expertise and background with the aim to inject breadth and depth into public discussion about the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

Louise, a respected author and academic of Chinese history, will describe how she sees China, why she sees China the way she does, and on that basis share her thoughts on what Australia’s approach to the PRC should be.

In conversation with Louise will be Hamish Macdonald, journalist and broadcaster and host of Network Ten’s The Project on Fridays and The Sunday Project.

Drinks and canapés will follow the lecture.

Tickets are limited and registration is essential. Click here to register.
