Empowerment as praxis

CAEPR events - Tue, 2014-07-22 15:54
06/08/2014 Richard Barcham

This seminar examines the different meanings attached to empowerment by the Cape York Welfare Reform Trial in Aboriginal Australia and the Community Development Agency Development Education Training program in the highlands of Papua New Guinea.

Both programs seek to address deteriorating social conditions, and see passive dependence as a primary cause. Both aim to rebuild social norms through restoration of Indigenous authority and access to the means to have independent income. Colonisation forms a common context for their use of the language of empowerment.

For Ali and the Motherland: Conflict, Development and Sectarian Imaginaries in Eastern Tajikistan

CAIS - events - Thu, 2014-07-10 11:22
Event type:  Lecture Date and time:  Friday, August 1, 2014 - 14:00 - 15:00 Venue:  Al Falasi Lecture Theatre, CAIS, Building #127, Ellery Cres., ANU Speaker:  Dr Till Mostowlansky

In the wake of the on-going NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan, many analysts have been speculating how it could affect Central Asia and Tajikistan more specifically. While this is an important question, the “Afghanistan factor” has also tended to overshadow ethno-religious ruptures and local conflicts in Tajikistan that are of the country’s own doing, for example, the conflict in Gorno-Badakhshan, situated along the Afghan border in the eastern part of the republic.

In the fraught case of East Jerusalem, the concept of biopolitics offers fresh insight equally into Israeli efforts to manage the city and into the scope for non-violent Palestinian resistance. The broader significance of the project lies in the capacity of biopolitics to present a fresh conceptualization of post-Oslo Israel/Palestine, shedding new light on the demographic dimensions of the conflict.

ANU Language Teaching Forum - The Off-line Revolution?! – Using ePubs for content delivery

CAIS - events - Tue, 2014-05-27 09:52
Event type:  Lecture Date and time:  Wednesday, June 4, 2014 - 16:15 - 17:15 Venue:  Room W3.03, Level 3, Baldessin Precinct Building #110, ANU Speaker:  Dr McComas Taylor, College of Asia & the Pacific, ANU

Teaching on-line has certainly revolutionised content delivery, opening up many wonderful possibilities. It enables course conveners to be more flexible, expand their student bases, increase enrolments and bring delight to Deans and Directors.

After five years of intensive online development, I hit five seemingly insurmountable barriers.
