9:00 - CONFERENCE - Courage and Cowardice : Australian Early Medieval Association Conference Website | More Information
This symposium will explore the subject of courage and cowardice in the early medieval world, c.300-1100, across a range of disciplines.

17:00 - WUN Virtual Seminar - China business: Green opportunities - Capitalism and Climate Change: Implications for China : The speaker is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney. His research interests are primarily focussed on the role of transnational economic actors, particularly multinational corporations, and the interaction between them and states, international organisations and civil society. Website | More Information
Capitalism is not monolithic. States' historical trajectories of development mean that the institutional basis for capitalist relations of production varies between them. The Varieties of Capitalism approach suggests that this variation is systematic, so that capitalist states fall within a spectrum between two categories: liberal market economies (LMEs) and coordinated market economies (CMEs). This has implications not just for how advanced, industrialised states coordinate their economies, but also how they address environmental concerns such as climate change. This seminar will outline some of the implications, both in general and for China specifically as it continues to integrate in the global economy.

17:30 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Skywest Public Lecture : What makes us tick? The ten desires that drive us Website | More Information
Why do we talk as if we're rational and act as if we're not? Why do we fall out of love? What is the point of religion? As a social researcher, Hugh Mackay has spent a lifetime listening to people talk about their dreams, fears, faith, hopes, disappointments, frustrations, and fantasies. In 'What makes us tick? The ten desires that drive us' he reflects on some of the things that don't change and identifies key desires that drive us. This is an entertaining and inspiring account of why we do the things we do, and Mackay's conclusions go to the heart of some of life's big questions.

16:30 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Absolutism from Below? The Remarkable History of Argenis : CMEMS / PMRG Public Lecture Website | More Information
Listed in catalogues of aristocratic, burgher and parish libraries, translated by Martin Opitz and Ben Jonson, and quoted by Cardinal Richelieu and Thomas Hobbes, the Latin novel Argenis by John Barclay ranked among the bestselling books in 17th–18th century Europe. Though officially marketed as a romance, the text bore a significant political message and became more than passing entertainment. Through reference to the history of Argenis, this paper contributes to the ongoing debate on how early modern political ideas were disseminated to a wider public.

In referring to the history of ideas,"the Begriffsgeschichte“ and literary studies the paper examines the parallels between the pre-1800 urban historiography and the literary genre of early modern utopia as introduced and developed by Thomas More, Francis Bacon, Johann Valentin Andreae and/or Tommaso Campanella. The analysis of mostly Central European urban chronicles, burgher diaries and panegyrical texts discloses the strong presence of a normative vision of an idealized community which was projected, however, into the life of an existing city.
