Curious about the role compassion and creativity play in our health?
Dr Christine Ledger sets out to answer this question in the upcoming Keith Roby Memorial Lecture in Community Science on 18 October. This free annual public science lecture was established in memory of Murdoch founding member Dr Keith Roby, who believed science could make a major contribution towards resolving the dilemmas we all face.
The Keith Roby Memorial Lecture in Community Science is an annual, free public science lecture made possible by the generous support of donors.
It was established in memory of Murdoch University founding member Dr Keith Roby, who believed science could make a major contribution towards resolving contemporary issues such as the dilemmas surrounding the environment, energy, resources, and genetic engineering.
2023 Roby Lecture distinguished speaker, Dr Christine Ledger, will present 'Sustainability, Creativity and the Human Vocation'. The lecture will explore the question ‘How are human communities to express their creativity, effectively and compassionately, in a world in crisis?’ This is a question for all of us.
Dr Ledger will primarily use the lenses of theology and history, drawing upon her PhD research Towards a Theology of Technology, to address it.
Join us and our distinguished speaker for this free evening event at Murdoch University.
Kim Beazley Lecture Theatre is located adjacent to Bush Court, at Murdoch University's Murdoch campus, 90 South St, Murdoch WA.
