    *Blackheath Philosophy Forum 8 - Saturday 7 July*


    With specific reference to China and the United States, our speaker,
    *John Keane, Professor of Politics at Sydney University and Director
    of the Sydney Democracy Network*.will explain why empires have
    played a vital role in shaping our sense of world history, why
    empires with a genuinely global footprint are rare; and why our
    planet, for the first time in human history, is shadowed by two
    globally entangled empires marked by different aims and practices.

    Professor Keane will call for an honest debate that gets over the
    embarrassed aversion to using the word empire.

    *Date:*Saturday July 7. 2018


    *Place:*The Blackheath Philosophy Forum meets at the Hall at the
    Blackheath Neighbourhood Centre, cnr Gardiner Crescent & the Great
    Western Highway, (entrance from park side of Hall) 4pm-6pm, followed
    by informal discussion at a nearby pub.Admission $10 includes a big
    afternoon tea before question time. Hall is heated.All welcome!
