Dr. Ann Hone talks about her return to Jordan. This country has had its troubles but compared to its neighbours it can be seen as an oasis of calm. It opens doors to the present and past of the Middle East at a time when elsewhere in the region doors are closing or are already shut. In this illustrated talk Anne looks at the present and, in keeping with her historical interests, focuses on the visible layers of the past.
Anne taught British History at Monash University, Australian History at Melbourne University, and then for over 20 years at the University of Canberra before returning to Melbourne in 1996 where she took up the position of Dean of Studies at Ormond College.In retirement she has continued to pursue her interests and used travel to broaden her knowledge.
