Event description

Description

In the third lecture in the series, Associate Professor Clint Bracknell will discuss the potential for revitalisation of endangered Noongar language and song in the south coast region of Western Australia.

Although British colonisation and ensuing Australian government policies of assimilation have served to fragment Aboriginal communities and dramatically diminish the vitality of many Aboriginal languages and song traditions, it may be possible to nourish their recovery.

Associate Professor Bracknell, Wirlomin Noongar researcher and Vice-Chancellor's Teaching and Research Fellow of Kurongkurl Katitjin, will explain how an interdisciplinary approach empowers and engages the community in sustaining their venerable traditions.

When:
Wednesday, 7 August 2019, 9.15am for 9.30am sharp start
