Panel Discussion – 2022: Reckoning with Power and Privilege

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

16 Nov 2022 Once Only Event

Join Michelle Grattan, Peter Martin and Dr Caroline Fisher for a panel-style discussion as they explore the potent forces that continue to shape our world and how those with the privilege of power don’t always prevail.

A brutal invasion of Ukraine. Australian voters ousting a 9-year-old Coalition government. A step towards instituting a First Nations Voice to Parliament. Grace Tame.

Entrenched structures of authority have been challenged at home and around the world this year. 2022: Reckoning With Power and Privilege is a collection of The Conversation’s most insightful essays from leading thinkers about this year’s momentous events.

Copies of the book can be purchased on the night from the National Library Bookshop and, following the discussion in the Theatre, the panel members will be available for book signings in the Foyer.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential. On the evening, for those who wish to meet for refreshments prior to the event, Bookplate Cafe will remain open until the event starts at 6pm.

For those unable to make it to Canberra for the panel discussion, it will be livestreamed online via the Library’s Facebook page. No bookings are required to watch the online stream.

This event is presented by The Conversation and the National Library of Australia.
