A Cost Benefit Analysis of the Yuendemu Mediation and Justice Committee - the economic case for local dispute resolution

03 Aug 16 Greg Barrett Rhian Williams Anne Daly

In 2010 Yuendumu was wracked by conflict.  The Yuendumu Mediation and Justice Committee (YM&JC) was established as an innovative, responsive and highly effective Indigenous designed and driven initiative that has succeeded in restoring stability and harmony to the community.  It has played a powerful role in breaking cycles of disadvantage, distress and suffering caused by unmanaged community conflict and is a positive and compelling example of the drive, vision and commitment of Aboriginal people in Central Australia to take control and responsibility for matters in their com

First a birth or first a job? Comparing cohorts before and after the 1990s welfare reforms

Demography - events - Mon, 2016-07-25 10:18
Date and time:  Fri, 12th Aug 2016 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm Presenter:  Professor Michael Rendall Location:  Seminar Room A, Coombs Building #9

The welfare reforms of the mid-1990s were intended not only to put single mothers to work, but also to change the way low-socioeconomic-status women structured their lives so that they might avoid so-called welfare dependency. We investigated whether the reforms may have promoted both goals by increasing the likelihood that young women would obtain stable employment before having a first birth. We used retrospective reports of these life-course events from two surveys, each conducted before and after the reforms.

Biography Workshop

Date and time:  Thu, 28/07/2016 - 12:00 - 13:30 Venue:  Seminar Room A, HC Coombs Building, ANU

Stephen Wilks will talk about his researches into the remarkable but little studied Earle Christmas Grafton Page – Country Party leader, Treasurer, Prime Minister and perhaps the most extraordinary visionary to hold high public office in the Australian Commonwealth.  Page’s incessant activism in issues of regionalism, new states, hydro-electricity, economic planning, co-operative federalism and rural universities make him a vehicle for studying the place in Australian history of ideas and ambitions for national development – ‘developmentalism’.

School of History Seminar Week 2: Haunting Biology: The Scientific Collection of Blood and Bones in Indigenous Australia

School of History - events - Thu, 2016-07-21 09:24
Date and time:  Wed, 27/07/2016 - 16:15 - 17:30 Venue:  McDonald Room, Menzies Library, ANU

One Canberra night in 2009, an Aboriginal poet was haunted by a dead comparative anatomist who cut through her body with a scalpel. This article takes a leap of faith to consider this not as a freak event but as a reflection of the general condition of scientific research involving Indigenous people in Australia, and perhaps in other places. Kevin Hetherington’s (2004) analysis of the first and second burial of animate and inanimate objects argues that interrupting a second burial can lead to haunting.
