Flinders University at Victoria Square

Light refreshments will be served following the lecture.

On what terms can we speak?’ Ethics, Connectivity and Climate Justice

Australia’s Indigenous communities face difficult challenges in formulating responses to combat climate change, particularly in regards to their relationships with mining companies.

Can we afford to practice the ‘politics of refusal’ and stop mining on traditional land, benefiting the planet at the expense of Indigenous communities? Or is the act of refusal necessary to demonstrate the need for colonial society to move beyond symbolic gestures and form productive and equitable relationships with Indigenous Australians.

Presented by Professor Tony Birch, Bruce McGuinness Research Fellow, Moondani Balluk Academic Centre, Victoria University.

The Duguid Memorial Lecture is held biennially and hosted alternately by Flinders University and UniSA, in honour of Dr Charles Duguid OBE and Mrs Phyllis Duguid OAM for their tireless Aboriginal rights campaigning.
