Many of our favorite podcasts come by way of Australia’s Radio National: Future Tense, Off Track and Late Night Live educate and inspire. Another favorite is much less frequent and is about to begin streaming — presenting the Boyer Lectures. Hashtag:
Each year since 1959, the ABC has sparked national discussion about critical ideas with the Boyer Lectures. In October, ANU Distinguished Professor and Intel Senior Fellow Professor Genevieve Bell continues this proud tradition. Her series is called Fast, smart and connected: What is it to be human, and Australian, in a digital world?
30 years ago, Professor Bell left Australia to study anthropology at Stanford University in the USA. That journey took her to the heart of Silicon Valley, where she led Intel’s first user experience research and development lab and most recently served as their chief futurist. Her job was to help invent the future and ensure that it was shaped by lived experience.
The first of three installments airs Tuesday, October 3.
