Doctor Who’s 60th Anniversary Event

20 October 2023

As the Doctor once said ‘life depends on change and renewal’.

Join the Centre for Critical and Creative Writing and fans from Australia and around the world at The University of Queensland on Friday 24 November to celebrate Doctor Who’s 60th anniversary with short and exciting papers exploring renewal, recovery, regeneration, and reinvention.

This half-day symposium includes a series of lightning talks on aspects of Doctor Who and a special guest appearance from Mark Strickson (companion Vislor Turlough) talking about his career at the intersection of popular culture and academia.

Join us in person for papers and morning tea, or Zoom in remotely to participate in this celebration of the world’s longest-running science-fiction television show.
