Workshop, ‘Powerful Stories: Indigenous and Refugee Histories of Dispossession and Displacement’

Vere Gordon Childe Centre, University of Sydney, 14 and 15 March 2024

To celebrate the visit of Dartmouth College’s Samson Occam Professor N. Bruce Duthu (an enrolled tribal member of the United Houma Nation of Louisiana) to the University of Sydney, the School of Humanities in partnership with the Law School and Vere Gordon Childe Centre are hosting a series of events including a workshop on powerful storytelling. The workshop will address the ways and means by which different peoples have shared and continue to share their stories, reclaimed their own histories, and/or uncovered different kinds of self-representations in their current work or research. The workshop will also include keynotes by Chelsea Watego and Jordana Silverstein, and a special screening of Kinchela Boys Home Aboriginal Corporation film “We Were Just Little Boys.”
