Books that Changed Humanity

New HRC Series 2016

Books that Changed Humanity is a book club with a difference.

Each month, the Humanities Research Centre hosts an expert from one of a variety of disciplines, who will introduce and lead the discussion of a major historical text. All of these texts, which are drawn from a variety of cultural traditions, has had a formative influence on society and humanity. The series aims to highlight and revisit those books which have informed the way we understand ourselves, both individually and collectively, as human beings.

The series aims to bring together readers from all backgrounds and vocations. Individuals from beyond and within the university community are warmly invited to come, listen, and share their thoughts about some great works of literature over a friendly glass of wine. Though the events will be casual in nature, RSVP is essential, both for catering purposes and for the distribution of preliminary reading materials for each text.

 


 

In our first event, Dr McComas Taylor (Head of the South Asia Program & Senior Lecturer at the ANU College of Asia and the Pacific) will introduce and discuss the ancient Sanskrit epic the Ramayana.

 

RSVP essential. Let us know you're coming via Facebook or Eventbrite.
