The Boyer Lectures 2017 will be broadcast on ABC Radio National in October, 2017. Final dates TBA.

‘Twenty years in Silicon Valley has left me with the distinct sense that we need to keep reasserting the importance of people, and the diversity of our lived experiences, into our conversations about technology and the future. Many conversations seem to originate in the United States, but I think this is a time and place to have that conversation here in Australia. After all, we are not just passive by-standers in this digital world – we have been active creators of it. So it is time for another conversation about our possible digital and human futures and about the world we might want to make together.’ Each year since 1959, the ABC has sparked national discussion about critical ideas with the Boyer Lectures. In 2017 world-leading technologist and anthropologist Professor Bell continues this proud tradition by interrogating what it means to be human, and Australian, in a digital world. 30 years ago, Professor Bell left Australia to study anthropology in America. That journey took her to the heart of Silicon Valley, where she led Intel’s first user experience research and development lab and most recently served as their chief futurist. Her job was to help invent the future and ensure that it was shaped by lived experience. Professor Bell has been at the epicentre of the biggest set of digital transformations in our lifetime, and now she’s returned home to Australia, because there are some urgent conversations we need to have about the role of technology in building our future.
