'AD HOMINEM' - The Newest HRC Series.


ad hominem

New Series 2016



The Humanities Research Centre and University House are delighted to announce a brand new initiative.

An ad hominem argument interrogates not the argument itself, but the person advancing it.  With this series, we take up that idea in a more positive way –– 'ad hominem' is a series of quirky, research-led conversations getting at the stories behind the HERDC points. Each evening event will feature three of ANU's most interesting thinkers reflecting on the personal aspects of their research: why particular questions fascinate them, how they pursue them, and how pursuing them has shaped their lives. 

Join us at University House for a glass of wine and an hour of lively conversation, as the speakers explore life inside and beyond the academy.

Future events in this series are planned for Tuesday 8th November.
