Leading authors Margaret Atwood, Anna Funder, Jared Diamond, Ahdaf Soueif, Robert Dessaix, China Mieville and Lawrence Norfolk will join a host of national and international writers for readings, talks, debates, and workshops at next month's 2013 Perth Writers Festival at the University of Western Australia.
On Thursday 22 November 2012 the University of Western Australia’s Communications and Media Studies department hosted the ‘Stories from the Silver Screen’ Showcase Screening. Representing the culmination of three years hard work, the gala event displayed what the most creative and talented Communications and Media Studies students at the University accomplished.
This year the event was held at the art-deco Astor Theatre in Mount Lawley. Guests were invited to spend the night watching short movies that have been produced, directed, filmed and edited by the students.
Getting the balance right between the opportunities present in trade, and a realistic appraisal of the strategic threats that may lie in the future, is the perennial challenge of foreign policy, the In the Zone conference at The University of Western Australia has heard.
