18:30 - PUBLIC LECTURE - School of Music presents - The Callaway Lecture Website | More Information
Professor Nicholas Cook is a world leading music scholar with an eclectic range of interests from aesthetics and analysis to psychology and pop. In this lecture, he examines the use of music to create affective values, constructions of identity and community.

His paper argues for a critical musicology that creates awareness of such operations. It reveals the complex ways in which people use music to try out identities and social relationships in a low-risk context – in other words, using music as a vehicle for making life choices.

19:30 - PERFORMANCE - Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost : Shakespeare's most literary comedy Website | More Information
‘These are barren tasks, too hard to keep, Not to see ladies, study, fast, not sleep!’

The beautiful Elizabethan style New Fortune Theatre at the University of Western Australia with its resident peacocks is the perfect setting for Shakespeare’s most beautifully lyrical play, Love’s Labour’s Lost, an extravaganza of wordplay and wit, glowing with lush language and romantic tomfoolery.

The Graduate Dramatic Society’s Sixtieth Anniversary production is directed by Grant Malcolm, the Award-winning director of the inaugural GRADS’ Summer Shakespeare season.

Hilarious and highly entertaining, this boisterous comedy delights with its excruciating cross-purposes and impersonations, drunkenness, bust ups and pratfalls.

No sooner have the young king and his courtiers at the court of Navarre zealously vowed to give up good living and women for three years to focus on serious study, than temptation arrives in the form of the Princess of France and her very attractive, very intelligent, and very saucy entourage – and the young men find their pulse rates soaring!

Infatuation, adolescent pranks and playful confusion lead to more serious matters, revealing the cost of real love.

This, Shakespeare’s most intellectual comedy, is also a joyous celebration of language, groaning with puns, rhymes, bizarre syntax, grotesque coinages and parodies.

18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - What Does Ethics Have to do with Leadership? Website | More Information
A public lecture by Michael Levine, Winthrop Professor of Philosophy and Jacqueline Boaks, The University of Western Australia.

Talk of leadership seems to dominate public discourse. Many of us have images of Martin Luther King, Jr. as a moral leader harnessing and focussing the hopes of millions in the mid-twentieth century. Millions of people read books written by corporate ‘leaders’ such as Richard Branson, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet in an attempt to not only gain insight into their money making abilities but also look to them for inspiration with respect to how whole societies can or should change. Teenagers wear t-shirts and badges that appeal to Che Guevara as leader. Sporting figures, especially coaches and captains, write books and give motivational speeches as ‘leaders’.

Much of this talk includes discussion about values and ethical leadership. But is this focus on values and ethics in leadership a sign of natural fit between the two, or perhaps a sign of deep seated concern that there might not be any natural fit at all? Is it simply wishful thinking? This talk will explore whether we have reason for thinking that ethics and leadership go together, and the reasons and ways that this thinking can and does go wrong.

Michael Levine is Winthrop Professor of Philosophy at UWA where he teaches a course on philosophy, film and aesthetics. His publications include: Prospects for an Ethics of Architecture (with Bill Taylor. Routledge, 2011),Doing Philosophy, Watching Movies (with Damian Cox. Boston: Wiley-Blackwell, 2011), Politics Most Unusual: Violence, Sovereignty and Democracy in the ‘War on Terror’ (with Damian Cox and Saul Newman. Palgrave Macmillan, 2009) and Integrity and the Fragile Self (M. Levine; D. Cox; M. LaCaze. Ashgate, 2003.). He is currently working on regret (oh brother!!!) and other emotions of self-assessment.

Jacqueline Boaks studied philosophy at UWA before working in management roles in several large Perth organisations. She is now undertaking a PhD in Philosophy looking at leadership in the areas of ethics, political philosophy and business literature.

This lecture is a part of the Institute of Advanced Studies 2012 lecture series ‘Global Transformation and Public Ethics’. This series of free public lectures aims to stimulate considered debate about urgent issues in public ethics and policy as well as reflecting on ways we can improve public discourse about such issues.

Cost: Free, no RSVP required.
