[cid:image003.jpg at 01D533DE.28F0E590]This year's Thinking out Loud lectures will be delivered by Prof Aamir R. Mufti.
Title: "Strangers in Europa: Migrants, Terrorists, Refugees."
Description: A growing extremism relies on an idealized figure of "Europa." Its spread around the world is highlighted by acts of violence such as in Christchurch. At core is the fear of a growing migrant population, especially Muslim. In this timely series of lectures Aamir R. Mufti takes long-view perspective in which Europe's past is inescapably conjoined to the present. Only then, contends Mufti, can an honest discussion be properly had. The future of a post-colonial understanding of the world depends on it.

Tuesday, August 20, Lecture 1: Europe: An Imperial Idea
Wednesday, August 21, Lecture 2: The New Pariah: Between Citizen and (Colonial) Subject
Friday, August 23, Lecture 3: Muslim as Minority

All lectures start at 5.30 pm to 7.30 pm
State Library of NSW, Metcalfe Auditorium, Macquarie Street building
$10 per lecture; $25 for the series. Bookings essential (it opens two weeks before the lectures)

Thinking Out Loud is presented by the Philosophy group at Western Sydney University, ABC RN, the State Library of NSW and Fordham University Press.
