    Professor Ghil’ad Zuckermann
    Revival Linguistics: language reclamation, cultural empowerment, intellectual property and Aboriginal well being
    This lecture will analyse the ethical, aesthetic and utilitarian benefits of language revival, and will propose the establishment of Revival Linguistics, a new discipline studying comparatively and systematically the universal constraints, global mechanisms and local peculiarities and idiosyncrasies apparent in revival attempts across various sociological backgrounds, all over the world. A branch of both linguistics and applied linguistics, Revival Linguistics combines scientific studies of native language acquisition and foreign language learning (language reclamation is the most extreme case of second language learning).

    Threads and Secrets: Black Women re-writing history through fiction
    Dr Jeanine Leane - Australian Centre for Indigenous History, Australian National University

    This presentation will explore the important and invaluable role of Aboriginal women in pre and
    post contact Australia as both custodians of culture and experience and in the re-writing and representing
    of the nation’s history. I will draw on my first work of prose Purple Threads (2011)
    which is an episodic novel. Set in the shifting socio-historical landscape of the 1960s and 70s in
    rural Australia, the narrative re-visits different historical eras, such as first contact between settlers
    and Aborigines in the Wiradjuri lands, the assimilation policy and the 1967 referendum to provide
    an alternative perspective on the nation’s history. With particular focus on three generations of
    Aboriginal women, who tell their unique stories in the different historical contexts in which they
    lived, national myths such as equality, freedom and the ‘workers’ paradise’ are re-written and represented
    to readers from an Aboriginal perspective. The presentation will include readings from
    Purple Threads.
