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.

13:00 - SEMINAR - The Imperial Discipline: Race and the Founding of International Relations Website | More Information
Disciplinary history defines the identity of a field of research. IR has traditionally told itself that it started in 1919 with the goal of bringing about world peace. This ‘world peace’ though, was far from the utopia we think of when we hear the term today. For the past four years, I have been writing a disciplinary history with Vineet Thakur and Peter Vale which emphasises the imperial margins in the development of IR. The project traced the ideas, institutions and methods associated with the discipline. We argue that some of the key ideas behind the discipline emerged in 19th century South Africa. These ideas then travelled to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, returned to South Africa anew and, eventually, came to India, spread by a committed network of imperial ideologues. IR’s origins, then, lie partly in the attempt to bring the empire together, to see world affairs the same way, and to better control world order. Racial ideas were central to the debates that took place within this network. This seminar will go through the argument and case studies presented in our forthcoming book The Imperial Discipline: Race and the Founding of International Relations, along with our call for plural, diverse and less US/UKcentred histories of the discipline.

8:00 - EVENT - Second International Conference on Underground Mining Technology : The Australian Centre for Geomechanics is delighted to host the Second International Conference on Underground Mining Technology (UMT 2020) in Brisbane, Australia, 4–6 November 2020. Website | More Information
Due to the ongoing drive for safer and more productive and economical mines, there is a need for the practical application of existing technology and the continual development of new technology. In recent years, a vast amount of technology development has changed the landscape of mining geomechanics discipline. Photogrammetric methods and laser measurement technology allows geotechnical engineers to gather data not possible before, and the development in drone technology allows them to gather this data in areas previously not accessible.

Integrated underground communications systems allow for seamless real-time integration, and personnel tracking systems allow for better assessment and management of exposure to geotechnical hazards. Geotechnical engineers now have data at higher resolution with wider coverage not possible before. However, effective decisions can only be made if data is turned into information, and knowledge derived from it. This conference will provide a forum to present and discuss new technologies and explore practical ways of implementing and expanding these new technologies to maximise their value within the underground mining environment.
