Dear alumni and friends

This month you can participate in international lectures and Q&A’s on modern Chinese printmaking and experimentation by Prof Xiaobing Tan; the implications of the offshore oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico by Prof Frank Alcock; and renowned curator Jessica Morgan on the Tate Modern.

The Sydney Ideas Open program this month showcases Sydney academics speaking about the politics of surveillance, and the Roman and Greek cities of Carthage, Athens and Rome.

I hope you are able to join us at one of the University’s many events in the coming weeks.

With kind regards
Tracey Beck | Director, Alumni and Events Office
