    The Conciliation: a gothic tale
    Greg Lehman
    Indigenous Visiting Research Fellow, AIATSIS
    Huguenot artist Benjamin Duterrau arrived in Hobart Town in 1832 only to discover he had missed out on an appointment as Drawing Master at Ellinthorp Hall. So, at age 65, he opened a studio in Campbell St and commenced Australia’s first public lectures on art. His plaster bas-reliefs and engravings were the first sculptures and prints produced in Australia

    Kinship Database and Genealogy:
    Sharing Genealogical Spaces with the Alliance, a Kinship Database and Genealogy Management System and Cultural and Social Anthropological Point of View
    Professor Shigenobu (‘Sig’) Sugito
    School of Human Sciences, Sugiyama Jogakuen University Seminar 9, AIATSIS, Semester 1, Seminar Series 2012, Ghil'ad Zuckermann, Revival Linguistics
    This presentation aims at pointing out the possibilities of "kinship ontology" for the computer graphics for genealogy and genealogical database management system. Professor Sugito, head of the database system development team, has long experience in this subject as he has been doing fieldwork research in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, Australia, since 1984. In fact the Alliance Project (which is a kinship database and genealogy management system) originated from his studies of Aboriginal society.

  3. Social and Emotional Wellbeing – a global overview
    Stewart Sutherland
    Indigenous Visiting Research Fellow, AIATSIS
    Social Emotional Wellbeing is an important aspect of Indigenous Health and Healing. It encompasses a whole-of-life health perspective, bringing together Land, Sea, Culture, Community and the Individual in both physical and mental health. The Australian Government is currently working on the revised Social and Emotional Wellbeing Framework; a national strategic framework for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's mental health and social and emotional wellbeing. The Framework is due to be completed by the end of this calendar year. The Framework will feed into the Australian Mental Health road map.

  4. Strategies of Justice - Wednesday 29 August 2012
    Jeremy Webber
    Canada Research Chair in Law and Society, University of Victoria
    This seminar examines how we might proceed in situations in which there are tragic conflicts of justice - where one cannot address one set of justified claims at all seriously without doing what would amount to another injustice - where, it sometimes seems, the set of just solutions is empty. It deals especially with situations where one people has established a society on land from which another people has been dispossessed, so that two peoples have deep and arguably incompatible attachments to the same territory. It sets out five strategies for how one might address such tragic conflicts as matters of justice, not merely normless compromise. One of the ways to think about the paper is that it tries to remedy what I think amounts to a structural disingenuousness in many arguments by non-Aboriginal scholars in favour of Aboriginal land rights. Those arguments are often pitched as though they simply sought the reversal of the dispossession, without the author coming clean about their own attachment to their own society - their inherent sense of that society's fundamental value and legitimacy. Instead, they rely on the fact that a complete reversal of dispossession will never occur as a form of cover for their more far-reaching arguments. "Strategies" asks how we might keep both sets of legitimacy claims in play, and work out their interrelations].

    Tony Lee
    Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Strategy Director

    Tony will discuss what is happening in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander “space” in headspace.
    So what is headspace? headspace, the National Youth Mental Health Foundation, is a world-first initiative providing youth-centric early intervention services to young Australians aged 12-25. It is funded by the Australian Government and was established in 2006.
    headspace has helped some 72,000 young people across Australia since 2006 through its 40 Centres and eheadspace, an online and telephone mental health support service.
