One of Australia’s leading political biographers and academic commentators on terrorism laws will speak at the Mullumbimby Courthouse Hotel on March 27.

Emeritus Professor at Monash University, Jenny Hocking, is perhaps best known for her exceptional and award-winning two-part biography of former ALP prime minister, entitled Gough Whitlam: A Moment in History, and Gough Whitlam: His Time.

Professor Hocking currently has a long-running Federal Court case against the National Archives of Australia, seeking the release of the secret ‘Palace letters’ between the Queen and the Governor-General, Sir John Kerr, regarding the 1975 Whitlam dismissal.

They remain embargoed by the Queen.

Presented by the Ngara Institute, Politics at the Pub opens at 5pm with the talk starting at 7pm.
