9:00 - SYMPOSIUM - Communicating Good Health and Wellbeing: Promotion, Advocacy, Resilience (WUN Symposium 28-29 May) : A symposium to discuss issues of health promotion in an era of anti-expert discourses and pharmaceutical solutions Website | More Information
Issues of health promotion and understanding the culture of health advocacy and anti-health discourses have become very important social topics in recent years.

Changing communication methods (digital networks) shift how publics know and understand their own health and medical 'norms'. New social attitudes (e.g., populism) have produced an anti-expert, anti-medical and anti-vaccination discourse that is gaining popularity and has substantial negative health impacts on individuals and communities.

At the same time, there is growing scholarly criticism that narrow health solutions, including some pharmaceutical solutions, discourage patients and the general population from embracing an educated, embodied, whole-of life-course approach and socially-grounded understanding of health/wellbeing.

Across these different poles, health communication and advocacy face ongoing difficulties in communicating well to groups affected by migration, ageing and socio-economic and welfare vulnerabilities.

This symposium brings together researchers in population health, medical humanities, health sociology, health communication and cultural studies to discuss key issues around good health and wellbeing communication in an era in which anti-expert discourses as well as narrow transactional approaches to self-care are clouding important health and mental health communication.

The symposium aims to (a) share some current research and best practice knowledge, (b) develop new understandings through dialogue that aids the development of solutions and advocacy approaches, and (c) build new alliances to aid intervention, practice and policy advice in the health and mental health communication sector.

Appeal: Will be of interest to scholars, postgrads and students in Communication and Media Studies, Sociology, Social Sciences of Health, Health Communication, Medicine, Health and Mental Health Policy and those interested in contemporary cultural issues of bodies and wellbeing.

19:30 - TALK - Friends of the UWA Library : Hungary - After the Wall was Over - From Communism to Capitalism More Information
In 1989 the wall between East and West Berlin came down and the Soviet Union collapsed. Hungary as part of the Soviet block had virtually been occupied by Russia for the previous 40 years.

In 1990 Hungary was economically weak and very quickly they saw their best opportunity for economic growth was to seek capital investment from the west. Coca-Cola Amatil Australia identified the potential of building their business and purchased the State-run Coca-Cola Franchises of Hungary & the Czech Republic in 1990. The operations in Hungary were in dire need of modernisation both in manufacturing & marketing. Jim Natt was asked to join a team from Australia with this mission and he worked in Budapest for 6 months in 1991/92. It was a time when Hungarians for the first time could buy products they had seen in magazines or movies. They queued for hours at the new Levi jeans store, or Nike trainers or big Macc. Natt was focused in the Human Resources area and involved the recruitment of new marketing teams and making some difficult changes for some employees. Communism had a low unemployment rate but very low productivity from their workers. Most Hungarians had a job but not necessarily a task. The talk is a personal story of Natt’s experiences working with Hungarians adjusting to a new way of life He grew to love the people and is proud to have a very small part in helping the country prosper today.

Jim has been in the soft drink industry all his working life spending 14 years managing the family business (Mackays Aerated Waters) and 28 years with Coca-Cola Perth in Marketing and Human Resources. In 1989 he retired to pursue other goals.

He was involved in some very Interesting projects including a few years on the organising team of the Variety Club Bash – a car rally around Western Australia – and, with David Tunley, helping to manage the York Winter Music Festival and the Terrace Proms.

In 1991 Coke approached him to go to Hungary as part of a group from Coca-Cola Amatil Australia to help grow the business they had just purchased there. Jim joined the team of Australians in Budapest whose mission was to bring the franchise up to western standards of marketing and production. His appointment was for two three month periods in 1991 and 1992 and he will describe his experiences in Hungary at that time and some of the changes that were taking place.
