Dr Nicholas Hookway (Sociology)

Are Australians less kind or compassionate than they used to be? What is the cause of this moral decline? Or does it even exist? In this lecture, sociologist Dr Nicholas Hookway presents his national research on kindness in Australia, suggesting there’s enough reason to question the conventional wisdom around moral decline. This lecture will appeal to anyone interested in understanding social change in Australian society and beyond.
