Swinburne Talks

Flattr this!

I’m giv­ing two talks at Swin­burne Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy on Thurs­day Feb­ru­ary 4th. The infor­ma­tion below is repro­duced from the fly­er for the event devel­oped by reg­u­lar blog con­trib­u­tor Matt Mitchell, who has arranged the talks:

12.00pm – 2.00pm: DebtWatch : Observations and reflections on the educative role of modern media

  • Dr Keen will dis­cuss his expe­ri­ence using his Debt­watch­blog on which he posts reg­u­lar arti­cles for dis­cus­sion and the role of this media in both edu­cat­ing the pub­lic and stim­u­lat­ing debate among econ­o­mists, stu­dents and lay peo­ple around eco­nom­ic the­o­ry and prac­tice.
  • Tar­get Audi­ence: Edu­ca­tors using online resources and those inter­est­ed in emerg­ing media.

2.30pm – 3.30pm: Have we dodged the iceberg?

  • Dr Keen will describe the caus­es of the Glob­al Finan­cial Cri­sis, and the role of debt in that cri­sis, as well as propos­ing some cours­es of action to deal with the effects of this cri­sis.
  • Tar­get audi­ence: staff in the Eco­nom­ics and relat­ed dis­ci­pline areas.

Matt would be delight­ed to have oth­er blog mem­bers attend, and the event is open to the gen­er­al pub­lic. So please make it along if you can. The venue for both talks is LA101 at the Lily­dale Cam­pus of Swin­burne Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy.

For fur­ther details, please con­tact:

  • Matt Mitchell: 9215 7140, mmitchell@swin.edu.au; or
  • Deb­bi Weaver: 9215 7204, dweaver@swin.edu.au

I hope to see some of you there. Clos­er to the date I hope to pub­lish  a ret­ro­spec­tive on the devel­op­ment of the blog. Some feed­back from mem­bers about the blog experience–which I can use in the talk–would be appre­ci­at­ed.
