What is your current job?

I retired in 2005 from my Senior Lectureship at Victoria University, having been there for about thirty years, with some time lecturing at Latrobe, and before that tutoring at Melbourne.

Scout Boxall

Scout Boxall is the Female Fresher Rep for 2013. When not chairing OCERC meetings, she may be found sealing letters to Stephen Fry inside coke bottles and sending them to the Motherland. She may seem like the quintessential indie gal, but to pigeonhole her would be a mistake. Read More

Sitting in The Sun Room as ACam processes reimbursement forms and Taylor explains drug addiction amongst Jazz musicians, I contemplate just how eventful the last month has been. 2013 promises to continue along this exhilarating trajectory, and your GC has a vision for what it seeks to achieve along the way.

#Spillard #Shenanigans

Planned productive afternoons quickly devolved as our political junkie alter egos came out of the closet. Initially, there was a sense of Déjà Vu. Both of us remember being in high school and huddling around a computer to watch Rudd’s teary farewell and Gillard facing her first question time. Then, it was something unusual and a moment of “political history”. Read More
