Q & A with Nicholas Jose

On Sunday 20 March, Professor Nicholas Jose will visit the Library to deliver the 2016 Eric Rolls Memorial Lecture. Professor Jose is a novelist, essayist, playwright and academic. He studied for his undergraduate degree at the Australian National University, and gained his doctorate at Oxford University, before returning to ANU to teach in the English department from 1978 to 1985. He then taught briefly in China, before serving as Cultural Counsellor in the Australian Embassy Beijing from 1987 to 1990.

Q & A with Tianli Zu and Edmund Capon

On Thursday 10 March, join multimedia artist Tianli Zu and Chinese art scholar Edmund Capon as they discuss their appreciation of Chinese culture as experienced from two vastly different backgrounds. They will converse over 5 themes: Identity and definition, continuity, ideological and 'spiritual' threads, nature and landscape and the contemporary diaspora of artists around the world.

We were lucky enough to borrow time with Tianli and Edmund to ask a few questions about their recent projects and career influences.
