Dirty Politics symposium on Friday

Otago University will be holding an online symposium this Friday on "Debating 'Dirty Politics': Media, Politics and Law". Andrew Geddis has more details on the agenda:

  • 1:00-1:15: Opening interview with Mr Nicky Hager
  • 1:15-2:05: Media panel with Dr Rosemary Overell; Dr Holly Randell Moon; Dr Brett Nicholls and Dr John Farnsworth.
  • 2:05-2:55: Politics panel with Dr Bryce Edwards and Professor Richard Jackson.
  • 2:55-3:45: Law panel with Professor Paul Roth and Professor Ursula Cheer
  • 3:45-4:00: Closing remarks from Mr Nicky Hager
You'll be able to watch it all livestreamed here ( ... as well as participate in debating the issues (and ask the panelists questions) via twitter at @HagerDebate and #HagerDebate.

This is a great example of a university performing its role as a conscience and critic of society; I'll be tuning in on Friday, and so should you.
