Speaker: Mary Beard
Moderated by: Bri Lee
For the first time, Sydney audiences will hear directly from Cambridge Professor Emerita Dame Mary Beard in an event that delves into the broad range of her career - from the ruins of ancient Rome to the trenches of Twitter.
No one is better equipped to tell us about how power is skewed along gender lines than Mary Beard, whose latest book, Emperor of Rome, gives us a nuanced understanding of sex, class, race, and politics in the ancient world, and whose astute observations of modern political power have shone a light on the remarkably persistent patterns of patriarchy today.
