  2. The Hothouse: Art and Politics at the Tin Sheds

    The Tin Sheds were a hothouse of art, music, ideas and politics. They were one of the most radical and memorable ‘alternative art spaces’ in Australia during their heyday from the late 1960s to the end of the 1970s. A group of dilapidated corrugated iron sheds across a busy city road from the University of Sydney were a place where — for a time — it seemed anything was possible.

  4. 2SER’s Razors Edge - Academic Continues Support For BDS

    The Peace and Conflict Studies Centre at Sydney University has vowed to continue its support for the international boycott of the Israeli government, despite more than a week of negative coverage in the Murdoch press.

    The Australian newspaper has run ten straight days of critical coverage of the centre and its Director, Associate Professor JAKE LYNCH.

    Lynch declined to assist an Israeli academic with an education exchange application, saying he supports the international BDS movement, which stands for boycotts, sanctions and divestment.

    Despite immense pressure Lynch says he won’t back down to bullying and is sticking with the campaign.

    He told 2SER’s Mark Robinson that international opinion is turning against Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land.

  5. Dava Sobel: how Copernicus changed the world - The Science Show - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

In her latest book, A More Perfect Heaven: How Copernicus Revolutionised the Cosmos.
