Events The Princess Pavilion, Falmouth welcomes another famous name for a very different type of evening when it hosts An Evening With Germaine Greer on Saturday 14 May...

Germaine Greer; writer, broadcaster and academic is one of the most significant feminist voices of today. She was born in Melbourne, Australia, and graduated with a BA Honours from Melbourne University, gained an MA with 1st class Honours from Sydney, a Ph D from Cambridge University and is currently a Lecturer at the University of Warwick.

Her first book The Female Eunuch details what Greer characterised as the cultural, social and psychological deprivation inflicted on women in an overbearingly male-orientated hegemony, although these days she admits her views have softened slightly.

For years Germaine Greer has identified herself with the philosophy of anarchism, and continues to do so. Her regular public comments on social issues generates controversy and publicity, successfully raising for discussion topics previously given little public commentary or debate. In 2001 Germaine Greer attracted publicity for a treaty with Aboriginal Australia. In 2003 she wrote The Boy, a richly illustrated book about the beauty of teenage boys. Most recently Germaine caused a stir as a house guest in Big Brother.

This unique face to face encounter will give the audience the chance to ask all those burning questions they have been longing to throw at her…serious or light-hearted, from politics to poetry, the role of women in third world countries, to Shakespeare’s women, or sex and the over sixties!

Expect the Prof to be candid, pithy, enlightening and a highly entertaining evening crammed with witty polemics.

Tickets from the Box Office 01326 211222. £15 Adv / £16.50 Door.
