2017 UWA Research Tasting Night - An Intellectual Tapas
Our popular Intellectual Tapas Night returned for a fifth year!
Feeding the mind and feeding the body go hand-in-hand. The 2017 Intellectual Tapas was stimulating, inspiring, appetizing and thought provoking.
Whilst being served a selection of tapas and wine, guests heard some of UWA’s most exciting scholars present their research, discoveries and insights. Drawn from a range of disciplinary fields, these UWA researchers nourished intellect and imagination.
Intellectual Tapas is a highlight in the Institute of Advanced Studies calendar. Always enjoyable, always interesting and always accompanied by lively discussion and good food, Intellectual Tapas was thoroughly enjoyed.
