Archaeology Seminar : Walking through words and images Writing and Art at Saibai Island, Torres Strait Other events...
This presentation examines publicly visible writing, painting and carved images at Saibai Island, Torres Strait, a border area of Australia. They have flourished since Papua New Guinea established its sovereignty in 1975 and in them we can see processes of social differentiation mobilised around citizenship and indigeneity at work. I explore these processes of differentiation between Saibai Islanders and Papuans to show that words, images and their materiality are the very substance of generating difference, and are thus comparable to other Melanesian processes of social differentiation. 4-5pm Thursday 25th February Social Sciences, Lecture Room 1 (G28) Enquiries: sven.
