Knowledge Intersections | Exploring the Research of Central Australia
A one-day research symposium showcasing central Australian research
Thursday 18 May 2017 – 8:30am – 4:30pm
Hosted by Batchelor Institute at the Desert Peoples Centre
Desert Knowledge Precinct – Alice Springs
This event will take place in the same week as the 2017 NT Writers’ Festival in Alice Springs.
The theme of the NT Writers’ Festival is ‘Crossings | Iwerre-Atherre’. This theme, and the conceptual work behind it, has been carefully developed by the NT Writers’ Festival organisers. The language in the title came from local Arrernte people who in-terpreted crossings as iwerre-atherre, meaning two roads meeting, neither blocking nor erasing the other; two-way learning or travelling together.
Batchelor Institute have adopted the theme ‘Knowledge Intersections’ in harmony with the festival theme to encourage local researchers to share how the research work they are doing reflects these thematic ideas:
How can/does research help create intersections or meeting points for knowledge systems, without one blocking or erasing the other?
How does two-way learning happen in research and how does it help us to travel together?
This is a free event but places are limited.
