Event: Ongoing responsibilities’ and finding answers

GML Heritage and the Research Centre for Deep History are pleased to announce their collaborative event series, ‘First Nations Speaker Series’. The series creates space for a range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members to talk about history, heritage and culture.

Dr Charlotte Feakins of GML and a collaborating scholar of RCDH, and Dr Ben Silverstein of RCDH are co-convenors of this innovative series which highlights the potential for collaborations across institutions to engage with public history and heritage in the context of deep history and Indigenous histories.

The first event features Dr Leah Lui-Chivizhe, who will present ‘Ongoing Responsibilities and Finding Answers’ online via Zoom. Dr Lui-Chivizhe is a postdoctoral fellow in history at the University of Sydney, and is a Collaborating Scholar at the Research Centre for Deep History.

‘Ongoing Responsibilities and Finding Answers’ is a talk about the challenges of working with collections gathered during colonisation—specifically ancestral remains—and the unresolved issues that this creates for First Nations people. Guests will have the chance to reflect and discuss this deeply important issue.

When: Thursday 13 May 2021.

Time: 6.00pm-7.30pm.

How to Book: Bookings are required, and attendees will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting after registering. Please reserve your spot here.
