About the annual Plunkett Lecture
The inaugural Plunkett Lecture was delivered in 1992, initiating a series of annual lectures which address the ethical issues which arise in the allocation and provision of healthcare in Australia. The lectures are one way in which the Plunkett Centre expresses its commitment to intellectual and professional excellence, to fairness and justice, and to the great values of compassion and fellowship in healthcare. Visit the website for available recordings of past lectures.
Throughout the year, the Faculty of Theology and Philosophy hosts public events with internationally acclaimed scholars and experts. Our public lectures, seminars, short courses, workshops and research colloquia explore how social, cultural, political and religious issues impact how we understand our world.
