The 2013 Boyer Lectures, presented by Her Excellency the Governor-General, is a precise and illuminating discussion of modern Australia.
'Like the best sort of conversation, the Boyer Lectures have taken Australians down countless paths ‒ enthralling, challenging, unworn paths. My hope is to open yet another pathway; one that speaks to the importance of human rights in building neighbourhood, community and citizenship.' ‒ Her Excellency the Honourable Quentin Bryce
The 2013 Boyer Lecture series, Back to Grassroots, includes four 30 minute lectures aired on ABC Radio National in November 2013, with the fourth lecture broadcast live in the Eugene Goossens Hall in Sydney.
