Presented by the Humanities Research Centre at ANU in association with the School of Culture and Communication at the University of Melbourne, and the Australian Centre on China in the World.

Pierre Ryckmans is one of the most esteemed intellectuals to have worked in Australia. His many writings as an art historian, essayist, literary critic, novelist, translator and political analyst address Francophone and Anglophone readers, connecting them to Sinophone and other worlds. This two-day event will host a range of speakers from Australia and abroad who will consider Ryckmans’ striking intellectual mobility across languages and cultures.

The first gathering of its kind, the workshop will explore the life and work of Pierre Ryckmans, with a focus on his achievements as a writer, translator, artist and committed humanist, and his varied contributions to intellectual debates in Australia and beyond.
