A series of five public lectures.

Unprecedented world events call for a better understanding of the country we live in. Come and hear the leading minds in humanities and social sciences at Massey University discuss critical contemporary issues.

- People On the Move.
Thursday 6 April 2017 - Distinguished Professor Paul Spoonley, Dr Anastasia Bakogianni, Dr Liangni Sally Liu, Dr Junjia Ye, Dr Fiva Fa'alau, and Dr Jodie Hunter. This lecture will get behind the rhetoric to help you understand the real issues of migration and the Government response.

- Trust, distrust and the end of politics as we knew it.
Thursday 1 June 2017 - Associate Professor Grant Duncan, with Dr Warwick Tie and Dr Damien Rogers. New Zealand holds a general election in 2017, while recent political events have challenged orthodox ideas and realigned power balances in countries around the globe. How can we make sense of this changing environment? What could be the consequences for New Zealand politics today?

- Has our quarter acre dream become a housing crisis?
Thursday 3 August 2017 - Professor Darrin Hodgetts, Professor Stuart Carr and Professor Kerry Chamberlain. This lecture addresses how we might meet that most basic human need - housing security and sustainability.

- New Zealand in contemporary world affairs.
Thursday 5 October 2017
New Zealand and the USA have recently fostered closer defence relations. This talk explores Asia-Pacific’s changing security landscape, and the roles New Zealand might play in the region as tensions rise over North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme, and China’s territorial claims over parts of the South China Sea, alongside potential changes in US foreign policy under the Trump Administration.
