Ruby is a pseudonym. In her non-pseudonymity she is an academic, writer, former public servant and former local councillor. She currently lives in Canberra (where better to observe political action?) where she lectures in political science and public policy. She enjoys literature and music, listens to ABC Radio National and grows food in her suburban backyard.
This blog is intended to provide commentary on politics, society and philosophy but Ruby is known to get sidetracked from time to time, so it could end up being anything.
Please accept this invitation to join Ruby for coffee and conversation anytime you’re in the neighbourhood. She’s particularly fond of a fairtrade, organic Ethiopian Harrar coffee she discovered at the Canberra Farmers’ Markets recently and has been known to put away the odd Iced VoVo or two.
