Annual Simone Weil Lecture on Human Value

First instituted in 2000, the Simone Weil Lecture on Human Value is held annually in Melbourne and Brisbane. Each year, a distinguished international scholar is invited to give a public lecture and academic seminar at ACU. The lectures are not intended to be a forum for engaging specifically with the work of Simone Weil, but are inspired by Weil's commitment to recognising the full humanity of our fellow human being, by her moral idealism and by her commitment to social justice issues.

Details concerning the 2015 Simone Weil lecture on Human Value will be uploaded here soon. Stay tuned.

An archive of past Simone Weil lectures is available via the menu on this page.
