Event description
CULTURE AND NATIVE TITLE: MAKING THE MOST OF THE OPPORTUNITIES

About this Event

The Centre for Native Title Anthropology Annual Conference 2020: Culture and Native Title – Making the Most of Opportunities, is to be held in Queen's College, University of Melbourne on the 6 - 7 February 2020.

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

The two day conference covers two main topics: ‘Where does culture fit?’ and ‘Sourcing new Opportunities’.

Native title has had a focus on the law and customs of claimants, but after the High Court’s judgement in the Timber Creek compensation case, the broad concept of ‘culture’ and cultural loss has been introduced. How are anthropologists to understand the concept of culture as used in this legal case? In Part 1 we examine how diametrically opposed uses of the concept of ‘culture’ and ‘agency’ were interpreted by High Court judges in a consumer affairs case. In Part 2 we look at how differently positioned parties/stakeholders interested in native title compensation claims approach the notion of ‘cultural loss’.

In the second part of the conference, speakers will discuss emerging opportunities in the post-determination native title context.

Speakers will include:

  • David Martin (Consultant Anthropologist): Where does ‘culture” fit: In cross-cultural understanding?- the ASIC case and expertise
  • Di Smith (Senior Research Fellow and Anthropologist, CAEPR) and Debbie Fletcher (WA Department of the Premier and Cabinet): Where does ‘culture’ fit: In compensation
  • Bruce Martin (Director, Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation): Attracting and working with private investment for regional development
  • Cameo Daley (Anthropologist, Deakin University): Women in Native Title Anthropology
  • Kevin Smith (CEO, QSNTS): Mapping resources to manage Country in a post-native title determination context: drawing upon the synergies of People, Place and Partnerships
  • Kevin Keefe (Honorary Lecturer, CNTA): Re-drawing the regions: opportunities and challenges in the current federal policy landscape.
  • Ophelia Rubinich (Consultant Anthropologist) and Wayne Denning (Carbon Creative): Interview with an entrepreneur
  • Workshop: Dangerous Ideas
