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.

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.

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.

14:30 - SEMINAR - On the Dearth of Ethnography in Higher Education Website | More Information
Abstract:

In the decade that just passed there were some notable lamentation about the lack of attention to ethnographic research in post-secondary education, or higher education (HE) as it is better known (Thrift 2011; Pabian 2014, Iloh & Tierney 2014; Gusterson 2017). To call the level, or amount of concern significant, would be an exaggeration, but this does not mean that the claims regarding a dearth of ethnography in HE is not significant, at least for those of us with professional interest in the area. In this chapter I want to bring the concerns together into the one space, opening up an important question for any ethnographer – “what is going on here”? (Geertz 1976; Walvoord & McCarthy 1990). The question takes us to the heart of the ethnographic imaginary, or more accurately imaginaries – views and versions of ethnography after all are matters of perspective and standpoint (Massey 2004). From there, I want to explore what it means to apply ethnographic imaginaries to higher education, speculating on whether some of the various ways in which ethnography is imagined and represented hinder its adaptation into HE.
