Tales from a cult survivor

  • Jeremy Hunt and his student colleagues wanted to do something to help the community. And it was the realisation that many homeless people still pay out of their own pocket for protection from the flu that sparked them into action.
  • Marine creatures can see their environment in ways that are beyond the natural limits of human perception. For them, it’s a matter of survival; for us, it’s a source of wonder and innovation.
  • It’s hard enough as a researcher to be published. And, statistically, it’s at least doubly hard to be published if you’re female. Now consider the difficulty when your first language isn’t English.
  • Join 'Contact' each month as we take you on a virtual guided tour, providing a brief overview of UQ's design pieces and where you can find them. This month, we take a look at the sandstone carvings 'hiding in plain sight' around the Great Court at UQ St Lucia.
  • A report from the US task force dedicated to investigating UFOs — or, in the official jargon, UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) — has neither confirmed nor rejected the idea such sightings could indicate alien visits to Earth.
  • How does a university tackle the issue of freedom of speech on campus? By having a free discussion about speech ­– on campus.
  • UQ experts put our drinking habits under the microscope and discuss how our casual relationship with alcohol is impacting our health.
  • Are you looking for more meaningful work? Want to monetise a passion project? Or simply curious about starting your own business? Follow this advice from UQ graduates who have done exactly that!
  • At a time when the world is facing more uncertainty than ever, Contact stepped into the studio with professional artist and UQ PhD student Georgina Hooper to reflect on her mindful art practice and ask how to use art for enlightenment.
