13 Sep 2022
3/31 Hood Street, Subiaco, WA

The full richness and complexity of the nature of Liberty is not well appreciated by most observers, especially mainstream media journalists and political scientists. In this seminar Dr David Hart discussed some of the attempts, including the traditional left-right political spectrum, to measure how much freedom a society “enjoys” (or “allows” its citizens to enjoy) and how successful these measurements are.

Seminar #8 Revolutionary Ideologies in the Eighteenth Century

30 Aug 2022
3/31 Hood Street, Subiaco, WA

Thomas Paine and Edmund Burke were two of the most significant thinkers of the Enlightenment. In a revolutionary era that profoundly changed the global order, these two men set the foundation stones for much of the modern western world's radical, and conservative, political traditions. The ideas of both men, however, were significantly more complex and diverse than their modern reputations would indicate. UWA's Dr Andrew Broertjes provided an introduction to Paine and Burke, the context of their time, and how the two men engaged with each other over events like the American and French Revolutions.

Seminar #6 The Causes and Cures of Poverty - With Dr Mary-Claire Travers

26 Jul 2022
3/31 Hood Street, Subiaco, WA

There are many social issues that lead to poverty and contribute to the continued generational experience of poverty. These include things such as adequate housing, access to healthcare, job security and so on. The focus of this seminar will be on the role education can play in lifting young people out of poverty. Dr Travers' research uncovered a multitude of factors that could be improved educationally for young people from low socioeconomic backgrounds. During this seminar she explored the belief held by many that there exists among the less well off “a culture of poverty” and how education can afford social mobility for people from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Dr Travers was educated in both the UK and Australia. She has an MA and a PhD in Sociology from King’s College London (KCL) after completing a Bachelor of Education, a Post Graduate Diploma in Educational Studies, and, being awarded a scholarship to do an MA in Education in Australia. She is the author of "White Working Class Boys: Teachers Matter", and strongly believes that education is the way for those from low socio-economic backgrounds to break out of poverty, achieve social mobility and contribute to society.

Clear Thinking and Intellectual Conviction

24 May 2022
3/31 Hood Street, Subiaco, WA

Science is an intellectual process of inquiry. “The science” is a belief system bordering on a cult. Two years on from the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the question remains how so many trained in medicine and science abandoned scientific thinking and became “believers” in “the science”. What lessons can be learned from this unique period in history? Dr Joe Kosterich M.B.B.S (WA) 1985 is a GP, speaker, author, and health industry consultant. Joe is a regular in the media and is often called to give opinions in medico legal cases. He is WA State Medical Director for IPN, Clinical editor of Medical Forum Magazine, Medical Advisor to Medicinal Cannabis company Little Green Pharma, and chairman of the Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association.
