Thursday 30 August 2018. Whose community? What can the Ancients teach us about merging and mixing? | Dr Anastasia Bakogianni, Dr David Rafferty

*****

A series of 10 free public lectures - Albany campus, Auckland

Will cyber-terrorism or North Korea be the biggest threats to our security? How will a culturally diverse society hold together, and what impact will the digital age have on future learning? Can mindfulness, poetry or religion be our secret weapons to cope with it all?

These are among themes in a thought-provoking series of free public talks by leading lecturers, researchers and writers from Massey University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences, aimed at helping us get to grips with captivating and unsettling developments at home and abroad.
