SLV: Faine to deliver Stephen Murray-Smith memorial lecture
Broadcaster Jon Faine will deliver the State Library Victoria’s 2019 Stephen Murray-Smith Memorial Lecture on 17 September, before signing off from ABC’s airwaves after 23 years. In his lecture, titled ‘Stale Pale Male Whale Yells “FIRE” in Crowded Theatre’, Faine will challenge and entertain as he explores the deeply personal and vexing question of whether humanity can nudge its way back from the brink of democratic disaster, and if culture rather than technology is the answer. The annual lecture commemorates Stephen Murray-Smith, founding editor of Overland magazine, and promotes research and debate in the broad areas of Murray-Smith’s interest and influence.
