The Janus face of late-totalitarian power

Monash University's Arts faculty is delighted to invite you to the Louis Green Memorial Lecture, an annual public lecture on intellectual and social history in honour of the late Monash University historian Louis Green.

This year, Alison Lewis, Professor of German at the University of Melbourne, explores some little-known facets of the ‘softer’ exercise of power in the GDR and, in particular, instances of what Michel Foucault called a “micro-physics of power” in the last decade of SED rule.

The lecture will be presented on Wednesday 31 October from 6 pm to 7.30 pm at State Library Victoria. Admission is free, but bookings are essential via this website.
