CANCELLED: March 2020 - Visiting Fellows Dinner

March 2020 - Visiting Fellows Dinner

Covid-19 Update:

We have been following the University’s guidance in dealing with the rapidly evolving situation concerning the COVID-19 virus.

As a precautionary measure and based upon the advice from our expert panel, ANU will cancel all public and social events from Monday 16 March until the end of semester one, Saturday 20 June.

This is a precautionary measure that we know will be disappointing for many, but our aim is to reduce opportunities for the virus to spread by limiting activity on campus without disrupting our essential teaching and research activities.

Unfortunately, a flow on effect of this decision means that we are cancelling our Visiting Fellows Dinners planned for March to June 2020.

The decision to postpone these events has not been an easy one, however the health and safety of our community is our top priority.

This is a challenging time and we thank you for your support and understanding.


March Host:

Our March host will be Professor Catherine Travis. Catherine is a Professor of Modern European Languages in the ANU School of Literature, Languages and Linguistics, and a Chief Investigator in the Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language.

Catherine will discuss her current research project: 100 years of Australian English: From Builders to Millennials.

Exhibition Viewing:

Mirrung by David and Noni Cragg

David and Noni Cragg are Sydney-based artists – a brother and sister duo inspired by their First Nations, Scottish and Irish background – who have combined their styles and talents for the unique exhibition, Mirrung.

Mirrung – meaning ‘belonging’ in Dharug, the Sydney language – is a vibrant show featuring rainbow-hued portraits of over a dozen Australian creatives, working across a variety of fields.

Their choice of subjects was a deliberate attempt to explore the range of cultural backgrounds that make up Australia, and question the concept of what it means to be ‘Australian’.

Registration required. Please register today through the link provided on this page.
