Suburbia has functioned for cultural critics as a provincial, materially aspirational, middle-class other against which an emerging cosmopolitan selfhood is defined. Critics of suburbia have in turn been accused of an elitist, now discredited kind of cosmopolitanism, one that’s been superseded by critical models of cosmopolitanism.

The annual Joseph Burke Lecture for 2014 will be delivered by Angus Trumble, the Director of the National Portrait Gallery of Australia. The title of the lecture is "Thomas Woolner in Australia". 

On July 15, 1852, the Pre-Raphaelite sculptor Thomas Woolner (1825–1892) embarked from Gravesend aboard the Greens’ Blackwall frigate Windsor, bound for Melbourne. Woolner sailed with two older friends and fellow artists, Edward La Trobe Bateman (1816–1897) and Bernhard Smith (1820–1885), and their departure inspired The Last of England by Ford Madox Brown. The three men hoped to make their fortune prospecting for gold in Victoria.
