The full-length version of ADM's 2018 Annual Public Lecture, delivered by Dr Meredith Lake. Hear Meredith speak on 'Beautiful Lies? History, religion and our common life'.

What kinds of stories help enrich our common life? Is it possible to transcend the culture war around religion in society? How does history help us re-imagine Australia now?
