Collaboration and Methods: Behind the Scenes in Researching the Long History of Drought Assistance in Australia

School of History - events - Thu, 2014-07-24 15:16
Date and time:  Wed, 06/08/2014 - 16:15 - 17:30 Venue:  McDonald Room, Menzies Library, Fellowes Road, ANU

Rebecca Jones, Karen Downing and Blake Singley will pull the curtain on their recent forays into an interesting mix of methods and sources that together, they hope, will add new dimensions to the long history of government drought assistance in Australia. We have begun to chart monetary assistance through financial records in official Year Books; visualise the language of legislation and newspaper commentary; and correlate these findings with firsthand accounts of drought in personal writings and oral history interviews.

A good idea that went wrong’: The rise and fall of two Aboriginal licensed clubs in northern Australia

CAEPR events - Tue, 2014-07-22 16:32
01/10/2014 Maggie Brady

Using interviews with protagonists and documentary sources, this seminar examines the development of two licensed social clubs that were designed to inculcate responsible drinking practices for their Aboriginal clientele. The Murrinh Patha Social Club at Wadeye was designed by well-meaning Catholic missionaries in the late 1970s, in a post-prohibition effort to teach moderation in a safe environment and the Tyeweretye Social Club in Alice Springs was established in the early 1990s for very similar reasons.

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.
