KewFest - McIntyre Lecture - Melbourne Street Life: The Itinerary of our Days

KewFest - McIntyre Lecture - Melbourne Street Life: The Itinerary of our Days

MCINTYRE LECTURE by Professor Andrew J. May

The Kew Historical Society is pleased to announce that Andrew J May, Professor in the School of Historical & Philosophical Studies, University of Melbourne, will present the 2018 McIntyre Lecture during the Kew Festival.

As a social historian, Professor May has published widely on the social experience and cultures of the Australian city - including Melbourne Street Life (1998), Espresso! Melbourne coffee stories (2001), and The Encyclopedia of Melbourne (2005). He is the Historian member on the Victorian Heritage Council.

Ugo Catani’s A Summer Shower in Collins Street, 1889, will set the scene for Professor May’s invitation to walk the streets of Melbourne, imagine the everyday past, and see the urban landscape with new eyes. For artists and historians, the street frames the ever-changing throng of the wealthy and down-andout, the passers-by, shoppers, idlers, hawkers, larrikins, prostitutes, custodians and law-breakers.

It is the stage of ritual, procession and protest and the site of proud architecture, fine trees and public utilities. And it also has its hazards. In the lecture, Professor May will discuss the growth and transformation of a great Australian city and the balance between the need for public order and the democratic right to public space.

Date: Wednesday 14 March 2018
Time: 7.30pm for 8.00pm
Venue: ‘Just Theatre’, Kew Court House, 188 High Street, Kew, 3101
A limited number of seats will be available, so bookings are essential.

Purchase tickets by phone (03) 9278-4770 or online www.hawthornartscentre.com.au Tickets $20.00
