Ecologically Responsive Regulation: searching for regulatory hope in Pandora’s Box of crises?

Fiona Haines
Multiple challenges are associated with designing regulation that takes seriously the proposition that we only have one planet. Intersecting ecological crises highlight the limitations of problem-based regulation in dealing adequately with the problem of ecological limits. This seminar will tease apart the possibilities within existing regulatory approaches to map out how ecologically responsive regulation might develop.

Lu Xun: Our Contemporary

Benjamin Penny, Ivan Franceschini, Sally Sussman, and Zhu Yayun
In conjunction with Professor Gloria Davies’s public lecture 'Hearing Voices with Lu Xun', the colloquium 'Lu Xun: Our Contemporary' looks again at Lu Xun, not as a revered icon of 'modern Chinese literature' but as model for contemporary social criticism, for satire, and for a kind of iconoclastic tone and method that might light a way in our own depressing times.

Hearing Voices with Lu Xun

Professor Gloria Davies, Monash University
