Guest Lecturer: David Vine (Associate Professor of Anthropology at American University in Washington, DC.) will discuss Australia’s critical role in the unprecedented global network of U.S. military bases, now totalling an estimated 800 outside the United States. He will explore the utilisation of these bases in recent U.S.-led wars, and their significance for global peace and security. Vine will also address how U.S. bases affect host communities and host countries like Australia. In an interactive setting, Vine will lead a conversation with the audience about the effects of U.S. bases in Australia and the extent to which U.S. bases constrain Australian foreign and domestic policy.
