    'Ms Brooks' Boyer Lecture series, entitled The Idea of Home, will explore the nature of expatriation and the lessons of a foreign correspondent's restless years. She will provide a very personal reflection on the environmental predicament we face. In addition, she will explore the particular ethos of 1960s Australia as a place to have come of age and deliver a lecture on the novelist's home in literature.'
