Books that Changed Humanity is an initiative of the Humanities Research Centre (HRC), based at the Australian National University. The HRC invites experts to introduce and lead the discussion of major texts from a variety of cultural traditions, all of which have informed the way we understand ourselves both individually and collectively as human beings.
Join the HRC as Associate Professor Fiona Jenkins introduces and discusses Judith Butler's influential work Gender Trouble: Feminism and the Subversion of Identity.
All members of the public are welcome to come, listen, and share their thoughts about this great work of literature.
