Friday Forum: Democracy, Reform, and Viable Statehood

Friday, March 8th, 2013 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Tasmanian Flag Question

Professor Peter Boyce will speak at the Friday Forum on March 8 on the topic of Democracy, Reform, and Viable Statehood: Reflections on Tasmania’s Political Predicament.

Professor Boyce is an honorary associate in the University of Tasmania’s Politics and International Relations Program.  He has a substantial academic career in Government and Political Science departments in a number of Australian universities.  Author of a number of books on politics, foreign affairs, and history, Professor Boyce’s most recent published work has a local focus – God and the City – A History of St. David’s Cathedral Hobart.

This Forum will take place during the first sitting week of the Tasmanian House of Assembly and examine a number of topical questions regarding the size, nature, and viability of the Tasmanian parliamentary system.  The issue of political literacy in Tasmania, and the lack of confidence in our governmental systems that is apparent in younger generations, will be a particular focus.

As part of the 10 days on the island program.  From the website:

A Filetta’s glorious, divinely pure polyphonic harmonies mirror the magnificent and rugged beauty of the group’s native Corsica, an island still deeply and proudly immersed in ancient tradition…  their performances are best enjoyed in historic churches and cathedrals where their sound takes on an evocative, ethereal tone and where the natural purity of their harmonies peak and resonate perfectly.
