Our researchers are driven by the desire to understand. They work to uncover new knowledge and shed light on the world's biggest challenges. From tackling Meningococcal B to finding energy solutions for the future, our discoveries make a difference to people's lives across the world.
At Research Tuesdays we share this knowledge, every month. If you're curious about the changing world, we invite you to join us.
Research Tuesdays goes virtual
The University of Adelaide is monitoring the COVID-19 situation, and continues to take action in line with the latest Federal Government announcements. As a result Research Tuesdays will offer both in-person and virtual access through Zoom and Facebook Live.
A virtual Research Tuesdays experience will enable audiences to continue to experience the lectures in a safe and healthy environment. The lectures will remain on the second Tuesday of the month, with the next lecture live streamed on Tuesday 10 August, 5.30-6.30pm.
Most of us would say we know Australia’s history. But the colonial stories we’re familiar with are highly selective. They reflect a single, whitewashed point of view. And Indigenous Australians’ voices and experiences are almost entirely absent.
This imbalance continues to present a significant barrier to reconciliation. The winds of change, however, are getting stronger; a recent Reconciliation Australia survey showed a large majority of Australians want to acknowledge what happened on our contested colonial frontiers.
In this NAIDOC Week presentation, a leading University of Adelaide researcher will bring some of our confronting history to light and consider how continued truth telling can help to heal centuries-old wounds.
Professor Amanda Nettelbeck is a professor of history at the University of Adelaide and the Australian Catholic University’s Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences. She is a Fellow of both the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia and the Australian Academy of the Humanities, and won the Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society’s 2020 prize for legal history for her 2019 book Indigenous Rights and Colonial Subjecthood.
Date: Tuesday, July 13
