The Frank Fisher Memorial Fund was launched in 2012 in honour of Professor Frank Fisher, to further his legacy through the education, events and publications of the Understandascope.
This year, help create the Frank Fisher Companion book
Soon after Frank was diagnosed with cancer in late 2011, filming commenced for a documentary about his life and learning. Sadly, he was only with us in the flesh for another 6 months. But in that time, we generated hours of footage, including many with Frank in a series of conversations about his life’s insights and experiences. These conversations are now being turned into a book. And we need your help to bring it together.
The Frank Fisher Companion book will provide a conversational companion to Frank’s body of writing. It’ll offer a more informal point of introduction, and otherwise complementary companion, to those interested in (or yet to discover) the life and thinking of this remarkable man.
The book will be edited by Frank’s friend, Swinburne University colleague, and successor as Understandascope Convenor, Anthony James, with Frank’s eldest son, Editorial Director at Broadsheet, Tim Fisher, and former student Terrie Hamilton-Smith.
Thanks to our team of generous volunteers, transcripts are now complete. We are now preparing to select and curate content, towards publication in 2016. We hope you can help us get there!
Donations to our 2015 appeal are tax-deductible and all donations go towards production of the book.
Thank you very much for your support.
