CAEPR events - Tue, 2016-07-26 16:26
31 Aug 16 Christine Asmar

Ninety-nine percent of Australian university students are not of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent. Yet most graduates will enter occupations where their work will affect Indigenous Australians, either directly (in contact with Indigenous communities); or indirectly, in helping to build 21st century Australian society.

Arresting Incarceration: Pathways Out of Indigenous Imprisonment

CAEPR events - Tue, 2016-07-26 16:24
22 Aug 16 Don Weatherburn

When the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody produced its final report, it concluded that the high rate of Aboriginal deaths in custody stemmed from the over-representation of Aboriginal people in prisons and police lockups.

The Commission made more than 300 recommendations, most of which were designed to deal with this problem. The Keating Government accepted all bar one of the recommendations and allocated $672 million (in today's dollars) to put them into effect.

17 Aug 16 Kerry McCallum

This seminar explores how transformations in Australia's media landscape are impacting on public discussion of Indigenous policy issues.

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

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

Seminar - First a birth or first a job? Comparing cohorts before and after the 1990s United States 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 US 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.

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.
