The Institute of Advanced Studies, City of Perth Library and Boffins Books are delighted to present Kerry O'Brien on his recent book 'A Memoir'.

In a 50-year career, Kerry has worked for newspapers, television and wire service, and as a foreign correspondent. Thirty-three of those years have been at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation where he cut his teeth on the trail-blazing current affairs programs This Day Tonight and Four Corners.

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Happily Single? It May Depend on Where You Live: how families shape single women’s well-being in three East Asian cities Website | More Information
This talk will examine why the experience of singlehood differs in the three cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo. Professor Nakano will argue that as the state has stepped back from control over the intimate spaces of family life, families have become the primary medium through which singlehood is encouraged and supported as well as discouraged and curbed. In contrast to arguments that the rise of singlehood in Asia reflects growing individualism, she will argue that family structures and values powerfully shape single women’s happiness, well-being and sources of meaning in the three cities under study.

This lecture is presented by UWA’s Institute for Advanced Studies, the ARC Centre for the History of Emotions and the Forrest Foundation and is part of a suite of events, including the symposium 'Emotions and Intimacy in Asian Migration, Past and Present' on Friday 23 November 2018.
