The new School of Media, Film and Journalism (MFJ) was formally launched on May 14 alongside the launch of Associate Professor Phil Chubb’s new book Power Failure.
More than 100 people including Monash’s Chancellor, Alan Finkel, and Dr Elizabeth Finkel, along with Australia’s Chief Scientist, Professor Ian Chubb, who is Phil’s brother, and staff and students attended the joint celebration.
MFJ is the only school of its kind in Australia housing the three disciplines Media and Communication, Film and Journalism.
Distinguished Professor Ross Garnaut launched Power Failure with the words: “This is an interesting and important book.
“It is a good read, and teaches us important things about our political culture. I was close to many of the events described in the book and I learned new things from it.”
Associate Professor Chubb told the audience how he had gone about conducting more than 100 interviews with politicians, public servants and ministerial staff during the research for the book.
