On September 29, 2014, Prof. Lance Bennett delivered a public lecture on his recently published book The Logic of Connective Action at the University of Sidney. The lecture, which was part of an Australian Political Studies Association plenary session, was one of multiple lectures Bennett gave during his trip to Australia. An edited and condensed version of the lecture was published on The Conversation.

The Conversation is a collaborative effort among academics in a wide spectrum of fields to provide informed news analysis and commentary that is free to read and republish. The Conversation launched in Australia in March 2011, in the UK in May 2013, and in the United States in October 2014 as an independent news source that allows the research community and the public to engage with one another directly. The aim of the project is to rebuild trust in journalism, to increase the quality of public discourse, and to promote better understanding of current affairs and complex issues.
