The Historical, Cultural and Critical Inquiry Group at the University of Newcastle (Australia) is pleased to announce the first paper in our 2022 seminar series, on Friday 11 March 2022 from 10-11am Australian Eastern Daylight Time (GMT+11). A Zoom link is below. Our presenters are:
 

Rob Hudson (Kurnai Monero Ngarigo man and Cultural Manager of the Krowathunkooloong Keeping Place), and Shannon Woodcock (white historian), “More-than-human teachers in First Nations museum spaces: Dingo and the Krowathunkooloong Keeping Place”

Dingo is a teacher in everyday life for the Gunai Kurnai Community, bringing the ethics and law of sharing resources from and with Country to the practice of family mealtimes. They also play a central role in the permanent exhibition of the Keeping Place, where Rob shares their purpose with visitors, and protects them from the colonial economy of extraction. In this short talk we will share what attention to Dingo’s place in Community teaches colonists about our ways of studying and representing ‘nature’, ‘animals’, ‘history’, and our ways of making homes on unceded Gunai Kurnai Country.  

This talk draws on our forthcoming book Self-Determined First Nations Museums and Colonial Contestation: The Keeping Place (Routledge, April 2022).
