Australian Rebellions

Are we a nation of rebels? When the British brought their people to this land they brought their laws too, but with mixed results. The social structure was penal not feudal, and the workers were more likely to be subversive than subservient. We’ve never had a successful revolution, the streets have never run red with blood, but time and again groups of people have resisted, rioted, and rebelled, denying the system its power over them, and doing their best to change their world.

World Rebellions

Wherever power builds walls, resistance will push through the cracks. Wherever an empire – British, Roman, French, or any other – oppresses and exploits, someone, somehow will rebel, even unto death. Join us in an exploration of just some of the dramatic revolutions that have spilt blood and razed fortresses over the centuries to see if we can find patterns in the causes, the ignition points, and the ways the victors behaved in the aftermath. And as the smoke blows away in the... [More]

Pirates – real and fictional

Piracy has existed for as long as ships have sailed the seas laden with goods to be plundered. Were they bold and dashing, scurvy and villainous, or desperate and dirty? Come aboard as we navigate between real pirates like Blackbeard, Henry Morgan and Anne Bonney, and their fictional counterparts, like Long John Silver and the Sea Hawk, whether they sailed the Mediterranean, the Barbary Coast, the Caribbean, or our own Australian waters.

Great Australian Love Stories

What makes for true love in the lives people have really lived? When people talk of the great lovers of the world they rarely mention Australians – that image of the long, lean, laconic man of few words doesn’t quite match the roses and chocolates of Valentine’s Day advertising or the life and death theatricality of old Hollywood. But this land has known many couples who were greater together than they could have been apart, who formed a partnership of mind and body and heart that... [More]

History of Clothes in Australia

If “clothes maketh the man” then we can surely add that “times maketh the clothes”. The reciprocal relationship between the forces of the era, including the available textiles and technologies, and the clothes people wear can communicate a lot about the values and aesthetics of the time and help us decode an image to reveal the class, culture, status, and respectability of the wearer. Plus…they can look so pretty! [More]

Philosophy, law and ethics

The philosophy of law is called jurisprudence. Such philosophy asks questions like, why do we imprison criminals? Is our tax system fair? Does law support what is right or what is legal, and is there a difference? What role does civil rights/liberties have in a society? Can, and should, law encourage virtues, why/why not? [Some of the philosophers we will be discussing: Jeremy Bentham, Adam Smith] [More]

Philosophy and society

Humans, as social creatures, are drawn to live together, yet philosophers are divided on how to best achieve a functioning society. Some societies appear to be based on utilitarianism, while others hold liberalism dear. Is there a right and a wrong way to live in a society? [Some of the philosophers we will be discussing: John Locke, Immanuel Kant, John Rawls] [More]
