Cover to Cover: Exposing the Bookbinder's Ancient Craft

Date/Time: Friday, 28 July 2017 - Friday, 29 September 2017

Location: Barr Smith Library, Rare Books & Special Collections, Level 1

Cost: Free: All Welcome

Bookbinding is a humble pursuit. Rarely does it receive the attention and glamour afforded to other ancient crafts. Unlike the silversmith or glassblower, whose talents are immediately obvious, the binder's craft of construction is largely concealed, making it difficult to celebrate that which we cannot see.

Yet a binding offers so much more than mere protection; it is a story in itself.

Delve into this fascinating, lesser-known craft in the Barr Smith Library, where exposed bindings, rare and old books, bookbinding equipment, tools and supplies from both Rare Books & Special Collections and the curator's personal collection will be on display.

Parental Alienation - Public Symposium

Date/Time: Thursday, 14 September 2017, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Location: Auditorium, South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI)

Cost: Free

More information: Visit website

This symposium aims to take a practical look at the issue of parental alienation and how family law legislation and services are structured to protect children, as well as mums and dads (and significant others).

As a consequence of parental conflict, children may reject a 'good enough' parent. Children who unreasonably reject a loved and loving parent are considered to have been alienated from a loving parent by the other parent. This scenario, referred to as parental alienation, can have marked adverse outcomes for both alienated children and the parents (and significant others) whom they reject.

Our guest speakers will review the steps that parents (and others) can take and the resources available to them. The latest research addressing this important, complex and emotive social issue will also be presented.

Symposium hosted by: The Freemasons Foundation Centre for Men's Health, the University of Adelaide, and Healthy Mothers, Babies and Children Theme, SAHMRI
