10 Things I Hate about America: Reflections of a Bi-Hemisexual Other events...
A public lecture by Susan Maushart, author and journalist.

In early 2011, inspired by Henry David Thoreau's exhortation to "live the life you have imagined" and also the exchange rate - Weekend Australian Magazine columnist Susan Maushart moved back to the US after 25 years in Western Australia. She thought she was going home again. But it turns out Heraclitus and Ginger Rogers were right. You really can't step in the same river twice, going backwards and in high heels.

In this funny, free-range and 100% hormone-free talk, Maushart ponders the paradoxes of her culture of origin from the privileged perspective of a born-again alien, from the dark arts of teeth bleaching to the high drama of the Weather Channel (her mother's favourite reality TV show) to the endurance sport of Extreme Commuting.

Cost: Free. RSVP to ias@uwa.edu.au.
