An ad hominem argument interrogates not the argument itself, but the person advancing it. With this series, we take up that idea in a more positive way –– 'ad hominem' is a series of quirky, research-led conversations getting at the stories behind the HERDC points. Each evening event will feature three of ANU's most interesting thinkers reflecting on the personal aspects of their research: why particular questions fascinate them, how they pursue them, and how pursuing them has shaped their lives.
The second event in the 2017 Ad Hominem series features:
Dr Chris Bishop (School of Literature, Languages and Lingustics)
Dr Terhi Nurmikko-Fuller (School of Archaeology and Anthropology)
Dr Shameem Black (South Asia Research Institute)
Join us at University House for a glass of wine and an hour of lively conversation, as the speakers explore life inside and beyond the academy.
