Lecture/Seminar Knowing the Basics: Keeping Kids Interested in their World 2013-03-19 10:00:00
Description

Join Bob McDonald, one of Canada’s best-known science journalists and host of CBC’s Quirks and Quarks, as he addresses an increasing problem in education where young people are "Information rich but knowledge poor." They can access any information in the world but still don't understand fundamental principles. Children need to be taken outdoors and introduced to planet Earth and their community, to see how things work and to meet people who use scientific principles in their work, whether it's the local mechanic, horticulturalist or city planner. Education reaches far beyond the classroom.

One of the most ambitious films ever made. Over a period of centuries, six stories wend their way toward visionary truths.

Lecture/Seminar Lansdowne Public Lecture: Professor Howard Morphy, Australian National University 2013-03-19 19:00:00
Description

"The Djan'kawu sisters at Yalangbara — Material expressions of Ancestral agency."

The lecture will introduce people to Yalangbara, a sacred landscape on the coast of Eastern Arnhem Land in Northern Australia. Yalangbara was the destination of the Djan’kawu sisters, who gave birth to the clans of the region. In theoretical terms the lecture considers the relationship between different material manifestations of the Djan'kawu sisters from a Yolngu perspective. Professor Morphy will show how a film of a ritual performance, an exhibition of objects associated with the place and a contemporary ceremonial performance all have a similar ontological status. The global distribution of Yolngu creativity, in the form of artefacts in museum collections, archived musical performance and films and photographs of people and ceremonies, has recently become an asset that can continually be reconnected to the present.

Professor Howard Morphy (Anthropology's Lansdowne Speaker 2013) is the Director of the Research School of Humanities and the Arts, Australian National University
