Re-igniting the culture wars: The Ramsay Centre and the media

Monday, 25 March 2019 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

After numerous unsuccessful discussions with universities around the country, the controversial Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation recently signed an agreement with the University of Wollongong to begin offering a new Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation. Current president of the UOW student union Chloe Rafferty talks about the campaign opposing the establishment of the Centre at the university and how this played out in the media. Then Imogen Grant, 2018 president of the student union at the University of Sydney, provides an overview of the very public campaign to stop the Ramsay Centre being set up at that university.

Monday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
