Colin Holt: a survey will showcase paintings and posters from a career in the Northern Territory spanning almost 40 years in which time he has forged a large following of local devotees.

The Way We Evacuate: the politics of mobility in emergency

Abstract
In 1965 the modernist writer BS Johnson compiled a collection of works from other poets, novelists and journalists reflecting on their experience of evacuation in Britain during World War Two. John Furse’s entry is one of the most compelling. He expresses evacuation’s multiple meanings in such a way that betray the simple but often unacknowledged assumption: that evacuation is for our protection. Instead, for Furse, evacuation is a kind of mobility that empties out, a movement that is done-to, rather than by someone. Evacuation leaves others, or a space - a vacuum – behind. It discharges the unwanted and abject from within the body or boundary. Evacuation is a withdrawal, a retreat.
The paper sets out a writing project that traces a genealogy of evacuation mobilities. It indicates the assemblages of mobilities, machines, architectures and networks which perform evacuation, as well as the bundles of ideas, discourses and practices which both justify and contest it. Potential case-studies from the Australian context will be explored.

About Professor Peter Adey
Professor Peter Adey is a political and cultural geographer based at Royal Holloway University of London and currently visiting honorary fellow at the Department of Geography, University of Melbourne. Working at the juncture of space, mobility and security, Peter is especially interested in the contexts of aeromobility, emergency and evacuation. He has authored or edited 8 books including Mobility (Routledge), Aerial Life (Wiley-Blackwell), From Above (eds, Hurst/OUP) several special issues (such as for Theory, Culture and Society), and other paper articles and book chapters. He is currently working on the book project The Way We Evacuate: care, expulsion and the aesthetics of mobility. Read his full profile HERE.

Review of Indigenous Higher Education Policy in the Northern Territory – Where have we come from and where are we heading?

Review of Indigenous Higher Education Policy in the Northern Territory – Where have we come from and where are we heading?


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Ms Cat Street, Project Coordinator, Office of Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous Leadership, Charles Darwin University

Date: Jan 23, 2018

Time: 10:30am to 11:30am

Contact person:  Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 7468
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Northern Institute, Yellow Building 1, Level 2, Room 48 (Savanna Room)

Target audience:  Open To the Public - All Welcome – Please Share

Abstract: The Australian Government is constantly investing in higher education reforms. This has included deregulatory reforms that began in the early 1990s and have contributed to a higher education sector in which institutions are now required to demonstrate ‘performance’ and that they are achieving ‘success’. But the term ‘success’ is arbitrary and can mean different things to different people. This is particularly relevant in the Northern Territory (NT), where Indigenous Australians make up approximately one third of the population and often hold worldviews different to those of policy-makers. This presentation will share the findings of a research project that examined Indigenous perspectives of ‘success’ in higher education in the context of an ever-evolving Indigenous higher education policy landscape. The research paid particular attention to historical government higher education policies and the responses of institutions in the NT to these policies. It is a particularly pertinent time to consider lessons from history about ‘what works’ to place the NT in good stead for its future.

About Cat Street: Cat Street has experience in research and evaluation in health and education settings in the Northern Territory and internationally. She has been involved in delivery of numerous initiatives that aimed to unlock capacity of remote Indigenous communities in the areas of health promotion and higher education. She also conducted a qualitative research project in Bangladesh as part of a Master of Public Health. Her areas of interest include participatory evaluation and systems thinking. She is the current Co-Convenor of the NT Branch of the Australasian Evaluation Society and is a former executive member of the NT Branch of the Australian Health Promotion Association (AHPA).
