The Conversation

  • Written by Debbie Dickinson, Head of audience engagement, The Conversation

Our latest book, The Conversation Yearbook 2016: 50 standout articles from Australia’s top thinkers, is now available.

In a year in which political discourse seemed untethered from reality, the articles selected for the 2016 yearbook turn back to the evidence, ranging from Michelle Grattan’s scrupulous assessment of Malcolm Turnbull’s first year as prime minister to Amy Reichelt and Clare Collins’ verdict on whether eating chocolate improves your brain function to philosopher Patrick Stokes’ thoughts on the most effective way to respond to Pauline Hanson. Taken as a whole, the collection shows the real-world relevance of academic expertise, as well as providing the deep pleasure of reading people who really know what they’re talking about.

We’re launching the book in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne and you’re invited to join us:

  • Melbourne November 16 at Readings Carlton. Featuring chief political correspondent Michelle Grattan in conversation with managing editor, Misha Ketchell. Tickets are free, bookings required. RSVP here.

  • Canberra December 5 at Muse. Featuring chief political correspondent Michelle Grattan and Nine Network’s political journalist Laurie Oakes discussing the political year that was, chaired by ABC radio’s Alex Sloan. Tickets required, RSVP here.

  • Brisbane December 5 at Avid Reader. Featuring Yearbook 2016 authors Liam Viney, Linda Graham and Fabrizio Carmignani, chaired by senior editor Liz Minchin. Tickets required, RSVP here.

The Yearbook 2016 will be available in bookstores from late November and can be purchased online now. (Order before December 9 to guarantee pre-Christmas delivery.)
