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
