8:00 - WORKSHOP - Static Liquefaction Workshop : This two-day workshop aims to provide a demonstration of static liquefaction triggering as it relates to tailings Website | More Information
This two-day workshop aims to provide a demonstration of static liquefaction triggering as it related to tailings, and outline the various tools available to assess the potential for this behaviour.

This will be achieved through explanation on the interpretation of the cone penetration test (CPT), laboratory techniques to refine CPT interpretation and provide inputs to other analyses, and finally analytical and numerical methods to assess static liquefaction susceptibility.

Mining and tailings consultants, operators of tailings storage facilities, as well as regulators will find this workshop of interest.

14:00 - SEMINAR - ‘Performing Bromance On and Offline: Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhall’, Presented by Jackie Raphael More Information
ABSTRACT: Bromances in Hollywood have become an increasingly useful form of promotion. Hugh Jackman in particular has utilised this technique in the X-Men franchise and crossed over into Deadpool. His friendship with Ryan Reynolds has even intersected into the films, as well as social media and into Jackman’s theatre show. They have also taken it a step further by including Jake Gyllenhall, whom they have both worked with individually. Analysing these friendships, it is evident that they choose to perform their bromances publicly in order to promote their films and charities, but also to gain online attention and develop their individual brands further. Going viral and having the mass media speak about their social media posts, generates further publicity and strengthens their fun and engaging identities. However, it is reliant on perceived authenticity, ‘celebrity capital’ (Gunter 2014) and humour to stimulate audiences. Thus, the friendship between Jackman, Reynolds and Gyllenhall will be used as a case study to examine how viral campaigns intersect with the curation of digital persona, celebrity capital and perceived brand authenticity.

Dr Jackie Raphael has a PhD in Creative Advertising and Design from Curtin University, where she explored endorsements, branding and social media. Her current research examines media, popular culture, bromance as a promotional tool and persona. She has published several papers and books on these topics. Dr Raphael has lectured and tutored undergraduates in Design and Communication since 2010. She has coordinated a Masters course and various undergraduate units. Dr Raphael has also supervised Honours, Masters and PhD students. Her current role is Senior Learning Skills Officer in STUDYSmarter (UWA’s Academic Skills Centre) and Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Social Sciences.

17:00 - CANCELLED - PERFORMANCE - UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Research Seminar Series : David Kim More Information

-----------------

The Conservatorium of Music is a vibrant centre for research in music and music education, where a thriving community of scholars is engaged in exploring the frontiers of knowledge, working on a wide range of research projects with diverse outputs.

Our free weekly seminar series showcases presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.

David Kim | Beethoven on Historical Instruments: Case Studies in Interpretation

“Historically-Informed Performance” is mostly obviously characterized by its use of historical instruments, and HIP players are instantly recognizable by their hardware: fortepianos rather than modern Steinways, gut rather than metal strings, etc. While musical hardware is inarguably central to HIP’s project, the consequences of HIP-based thinking reach far beyond instruments. Taking Beethoven’s 250th as our cue, we will use case studies from Beethoven’s compositions to illustrate that technology is inextricably interwoven with musical style and can even shed new light on familiar compositions. Perhaps more importantly, these case studies will also be used to offer freeing interpretive possibilities, and even fresh perspectives on what it means to be a musician.

Bio – David Hyun-su Kim is a concert pianist specializing in historical performance, holds degrees from Harvard, Yale, and Cornell Universities, a Doctorate from the New England Conservatory, and serves as Associate Professor of music at Whitman College.

In celebration of Beethoven’s 250th, he will be performing an all-Beethoven program on Thursday, March 19th at 7:30. Further details https://www.trybooking.comBHVTJ

14:00 - SEMINAR - A masterclass with Henriette Rødland, Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Uppsala University, Sweden. More Information
Connecting three continents and spanning a vast network of coastlines, the Indian Ocean has been an arena for commerce and interaction for at least 2,000 years. An integral part of this interaction was the movement of people, both voluntary and involuntary, or something in-between. Labourers, merchants, indentured and enslaved individuals moved (or were moved) between settlements, regions, and coasts, leading to a wide dispersal of commodities, languages, and ideologies. These events have left tangible remains in the form of texts, artefacts, and architecture, as well as intangible traces embedded in religion, culture, and customs, many of which can still be observed today. This masterclass will focus on the ways in which these labour histories and their impact within the Indian Ocean can be studied through a variety of disciplines, including history, archaeology, and heritage management, and why it is important to understand the movement of people in the past. The history of slavery in the Indian Ocean is particularly interesting yet understudied, and the way in which this history is remembered varies greatly depending on specific cultural and political factors. In this masterclass, the Indian Ocean will offer a comparative lens through which we can understand these different factors. It aims to discuss and problematise the role of researchers in the history and heritage of slavery, and how it is remembered, studied, and communicated.

About the Speaker:

Henriette Rødland is an archaeologist and PhD student at the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History at Uppsala University, Sweden, where she has also been teaching undergraduate and postgraduate classes on heritage, slavery, and urbanisation. She has also been a visiting teacher at the University of Pretoria, South Africa. She specialises in Swahili urban archaeology and the history and archaeology of slavery in East Africa, with a particular focus on the role of artefacts in reflecting, maintaining, and negotiating social identities and inequalities. Her research currently centres on northern Zanzibar, Tanzania, and two early second millennium urban sites that were wellconnected to the Indian Ocean sphere of commerce. These relationships brought pottery, cloth, beads, and glass to East Africa, while timber, gold, ivory, and enslaved individuals were exported to other Indian Ocean ports. Henriette holds a BA from the University of York and an MA from the University of East Anglia (Sainsbury Research Unit), where her research focused on archaeological and historical approaches to slavery in West and East Africa.

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Subsurface Energy Choices: challenges and opportunities *cancelled* Website | More Information

18:00 - CANCELLED - PUBLIC LECTURE - Migration, race and ethnicity: Reimagining Australia’s identity : With Tim Watts, federal member for Gellibrand Website | More Information
Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

COVID-19

-----------------

How do Australians think of Australian identity? Do we see Australianness as a set of civic values and practices which, if embraced, allow all of us to be Australians equally? Or is national identity framed in terms of the once-dominant European ethnicity?

Tim Watts, federal member for Gellibrand and author of The Golden Country: Australia’s Changing Identity, will discuss the tensions and opportunities of Australia’s growing ethnic diversity. Tim will explore the relevance of once familiar Australian values; putting forth a compelling argument that we must now revisit our history “through the eyes of modern Australia”.

Tim will be joined by Professor Loretta Baldassar and Professor Benjamin Reilly who will debate some of the most vexing policy dilemmas that arise from the country’s rapidly changing ethnic landscape.

Tuesday 24
8:00 - WORKSHOP - Introduction to the Application of Risk-Based Methods in Underground Mining Geomechanics Workshop : A forum for underground mine workers to discuss: the methods used to design for geotechnical risk Website | More Information
Within the mining community, geotechnical risk is often underappreciated, sometimes ignored and seldom properly quantified. In all areas of geomechanics, the uncertainty and variability that engineers need to deal with necessitate a rigorous process of quantification or, in the very least, robustly qualifying likelihoods and consequences. There appears also to be a large gap between the state-of-the-art and the state of general practice when it comes to the qualification and quantification of geotechnical risk. The aim of this ACG workshop is to provide a forum for underground mine workers to discuss: the methods used to design for geotechnical risk and those used to manage these risks; to identify shortcomings; and to close the gap between the state-of-the-art and the state-of-practice.
Thursday 26
18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Historically Hot: Reimagining Beauty from Japan's Past *Cancelled* Website | More Information
A public lecture by Laura Miller, Eiichi Shibusawa-Seigo Arai Endowed Professor of Japanese Studies and Professor of History, University of Missouri–St. Louis and 2020 UWA Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

**Unfortunately due to travel restrictions, this public lecture has been cancelled. **

This presentation will feature several reimagined historical figures who are represented by actors, cosplayers, or drawn characters who reflect today's beauty ideology rather than those of the periods they are portraying. Although some efforts are made to depict the costumes and hairstyles of the period, the desire to cater to current beauty norms dominates these productions.

Laura Miller is an internationally prominent scholar of Japan studies and linguistic anthropology, as well as of the body and feminism, girl culture, mysticism and divination in Japan. After graduation from the University of California, Santa Barbara with BA degrees in Anthropology and Asian Studies, she supervised an English language program for a Japanese company in Osaka (1977-1981). She received her PhD in anthropology from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 1988.
Friday 27
11:00 - SEMINAR - Understanding the Role of Transnational Intellectual Networks within the South Korean Pro-democracy Movement – A case study of the Letters from South Korea Project More Information
What role did transnational intellectual networks play in South Korea’s pro-democracy movement? The political turmoil in post-war Korea that culminated in the proclamation of martial law on 17 October 1972 and the promulgation of the Yushin Constitution on 27 December 1972 resulted in a fracture in the link between the South Korean state and civil society. The government actively undermined freedom of speech within the country and was accused of disregarding human rights. In response, domestic actors sought to engage international connections to pressure their government from the outside to change its behaviour. My research focuses on one particular project which sought to influence the Park Regime through a transnational intellectual network. The “Letters from South Korea” was a 16–year long series of articles that were published monthly between May 1973 and March 1988 in the influential Japanese magazine, “Sekai”. These articles were the public face of a project that was built on an elaborate network of individuals and groups that worked together to covertly collect information from Korea and smuggle it into Japan for translation and publication. The articles provided information to the magazine’s readers on Korean activists who fought to restore democracy. The articles, which were published in Japanese, were translated into many languages and circulated worldwide. By focusing on this under-explored narrative of grassroots cooperation between South Korea and Japan, my research attempts to rethink the recent political history between these two nations, with the aim of identifying possible avenues for improving relations going forward.

We apologise for any disappointment this may cause, however we believe that this is the most responsible course of action at this time, as the health and wellbeing of our community take priority.

We hope to reschedule this talk at a later date.

11:00 - SEMINAR - The Practice of Environmental Education in Franciscan Schools in Jakarta and Bekasi, Indonesia Website | More Information
This presentation discusses the draft of paper on Franciscan senior high schools in Indonesia to see how Franciscan philosophy regarding the environment is transformed into practice in Franciscan schools. Using mainly qualitative data gained from participant observation in two Franciscan senior high schools in Bekasi and Jakarta and interviews with leaders, teachers and students, the presentation then examines how teachers and students put the philosophy and teachings into practice. Students and teachers have a clear Franciscan identity, and the presentation explores what this means in terms of religious beliefs and attitudes towards the environment as well as motivation for pro-environment practices. Finally, the presentation explains the students’ reported environmental practices, including the challenges and the limitations.

Suhadi is a Lecturer at the State Islamic University Sunan Kalijaga Yogyakarta Indonesia. Previously he was associate researcher at the School of Social Sciences, University of Western Australia.
