Dr Hannah Forsyth (ACU): ‘Frontiers of the New Cold War: universities, expertise and class conflict in contemporary Australia’

Hosted by the University of New England

Please join the University of New England with Dr Forsyth as she presents the Russell Ward Annual Lecture for 2020. Dr Forsyth is a historian of work, education and capitalism, the author of A History of the Modern Australian University and is currently working towards a new book, tentatively entitled Virtue Capitalism on the history of professions in Australia and globally.

Her lecture will historicise the conservative opposition to expertise in contemporary politics, arguing that this reflects a kind of class conflict that has emerged globally since the 1970s. The material interests of managerial capitalism are now in conflict with the sorts of morality derived from professional expertise and on which professional and academic authority rests.
