Dowsett, Professor Gary
The Greens will not support this motion. The motion is simply a rerun of attacks from 2016 against the integrity of a well-respected academic and the institution that employs him. As is so often the case, references from an article published 36 years ago have been removed from their context in order to confect a social outrage. La Trobe University has already made clear its support for Professor Dowsett, who across the breadth of his career has made a valuable contribution to the academic and intellectual life of this country.
