Bob Carr: Postgraduate Information Evening
Former NSW premier and Centre board director, Bob Carr, spoke to the gathering about the US presidency – including his recent reassessment of John Kennedy having listened to his 1963 ‘peace speech’ urging an end to the Cold War. The night at Sydney’s MLC Centre was intended to provide information and enable prospective students and their families to speak to academic, administrative staff, and former students, about the US Studies Centre’s postgraduate course offerings. Dean Fernandez, graduate, Master of Letters in US Studies and Lauren Haumesser also presented on this fun-filled evening.
