    Co-presented by Sydney Ideas and the Griffith Review, and featuring Political Economy alumnus Michael Newton, Griffith Review 56: Millennials Strike Back is devoted to the challenges and opportunities this generation is facing and embracing.

    Wheelwright Lecture 2017 | Manufacturing the Future: Cultures of Production for the Anthropocene

    Debates about the future of manufacturing in Australia return to prominence every few years, prompted by the latest downturn in employment or closure of a plant. What kinds of manufacturing cultures might be up to the challenges of the Anthropocene? In the 2017 Wheelwright Lecture, Professor Katherine Gibson from Western Sydney University will present on her research project addressing to this issue. Kathering will explore whether there are businesses in Australia that genuinely sustain equitable communities and healthy ecologies while remaining financially viable.
