THE ANARCHY: WILLIAM DALRYMPLE

We still talk, both in India and in Britain, about Britain conquering India. But that phrase disguises a much for sinister reality. It was not the British Government that ceased India at the end of the 18th Century, but a dangerously unregulated private company,  headquartered in one small office, five windows wide, and managed in India by an unstable sociopath, Clive. The transition to colonialism, the principle framing context for all the major historical questions about African and Asian societies over the last 200 years took place through the mechanism of a for profit operation which existed entirely for the purpose of  enriching investors. It remains the supreme act of corporate violence in history.

When: 6 for 6.30pm, Mon 4 Nov 2019
Where: Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, South Bank

THIS CHAIR ROCKS: ASHTON APPLEWHITE

From childhood on, we’re barraged by messages that it’s sad to be old. That wrinkles are embarrassing, and old people useless. Author and activist Ashton Applewhite believed them too—until she realized where this prejudice comes from and the damage it does. Ashton Applewhite explains the roots of ageism—in history and in our own age denial—and how it divides and debases, examines how ageist myths and stereotypes cripple the way our brains and bodies function, looks at ageism in the workplace and the bedroom, exposes the cost of the myth of independence, critiques the portrayal of olders as burdens to society, describes what an all-age-friendly world would look like, and concludes with a rousing call to action. 

When: 6 for 6.30pm, Tues 19 Nov 2019
Where: Queensland Conservatorium, South Bank Brisbane
