16:00 - EVENT - Archaeology Seminar Series : Some Key Issues in South American Archaeology:Colonization, Discontinuities, and Linguistic Replacements More Information
South America was the last large continental landmass to be peopled by humans, during the Late Pleistocene, initiating an occupational history of ca. 15.000 years. This presentation outlines this history from a biogeographical and demographic perspective, by selecting a few cases extending from Colombia (10º N), in the northern end of South America, to Tierra del Fuego Island (53º S). This perspective is highly selective, seeking to illustrate some of the main issues being discussed in South American archaeology. Three processes are selected that span the human peopling. First, the early human colonization and the behavioral variability associated with this process. In this context, the Island of Tierra del Fuego allows a comparative analysis with Tasmania. Secondly, a large-scale archaeological discontinuity recorded at several regions during the Mid- Holocene, which may have had profound demographic implications. The ‘Islands in the Interior’ (sensu Veth 1993)biogeographical model is a useful frame for assessing this case. Finally, a discussion of the so-called Late Holocene Araucanización process of linguistic diffusion is used to explore the dynamics of linguistic replacements. The Australian Pama Nyungan case is an obvious target for comparison. On the basis of this presentation, some significant processes and mechanisms are identified, which are interesting points of departure for comparative endeavors.

11:00 - SEMINAR - Are we Postnational yet? : Seminar - Anthropology & Sociology More Information
Academic debate about the anachronism of national borders has been common for some time. The general population, however, has been less keen to embrace such ideas. This paper considers some of the academic arguments, and then offers evidence from focus groups conducted across Australia, that indicates that in some quarters thinking beyond the nation is occurring. It argues that the ideology of the nation state remains extremely strong among the general population, who use a particular rhetorical device, ‘the principle/practical’ dichotomy, to attempt to shut down conversation about the possibility of moving beyond national borders to a state of postnationalism. However, it also offers evidence that some Australians are able to think past the taken-for-granted nationalism that this viewpoint represents, if not to consider alternatives, at least to recognise the arbitrariness of current practice. The paper considers the degree to which such arguments are acts of ‘banal anti-nationalism’ or indeed, postnationalism.

13:00 - SEMINAR - Anthropology Seminar : Atikamekw postcolonial territoriality: A complex co--existence and entanglement between Indigenous and non-Indigenous regimes of values More Information
The Atikamekw are an Algonquian group, now living in three communities in the Upper St- Maurice region (Québec, Canada) and number around 6,000 people. While they have been “invited”, all through the colonial period, to gradually exclude themselves from Nitaskinan, their ancestral lands, they maintain to this day intimate relationships with their territory. In order to regain and affirm their autonomy, the Atikamekw are engaged at three interrelated levels: at the national political level, in arduous land claims negotiations with the federal and provincial governments; at the regional technical level, in their attempts to conclude co-management agreements with non-Indigenous groups of interests, like the forestry industry; and at the level of the communities/settlements, on a more social and cultural basis. The Atikamekw are concerned with the maintenance and the reproduction of their customary land tenure system, based on family territories, while constantly adapting it to new constraints, namely Quebec’s administrative delimitations and non-Indigenous activities on Nitaskinan. The Atikamekw family territories, as postcolonial spaces, have thus become the grounds of complex co-existence and entanglement between Indigenous and non-Indigenous regimes of values, land tenure systems, forms of governance, and conceptions of the forestland and its non-human inhabitants. The Atikamekw are also concerned about the transmission of knowledge, values and ethos pertaining to hunting and gathering to the younger generations and explore novel avenues to meet that objective. These different forms and levels of engagement will be discussed in my paper. Sylvie Poirier is Professor in the Department of Anthropology, Université Laval (Quebec, Canada). She has done research among Aboriginal people in the Australian Western Desert since 1980 and among the Atikamekw, a First Nation in north-central Quebec, since 1990. She is the author of A World of Relationships: Itineraries, Dreams, and Events in the Australian Western Desert (2005) and coeditor (with John Clammer and Eric Schwimmer) of Figured Worlds: Ontological Obstacles in Intercultural Relations (2004). Since 2006, she is working, closely with the Council of the Atikamekw Nation, on the documentation and valorization of their traditional knowledge, and exploring avenues to make it more available to the younger generations.

16:00 - SEMINAR - Archaeology Seminar Series : Summary of Results of the 2013 Field School at Fremantle Prison More Information
This year’s archaeological field school (ARCY3002) took place at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Fremantle Prison. Field work began on September 23rd and continued until Oct 4th. In this presentation we will discuss the background history of the site, the areas chosen for investigation, an overview of our programmatic agreement with the facility, and UWA’s five year on-going plan for excavation. Three of the Masters of Professional Archaeology students functioned as trench supervisors and will present a summary of their individual findings and experiences. This year’s investigations revealed insight into the history of the original bath-house, its refurbishment, the complex drainage system and its problematic nature. It also helped us understand some of the refuse disposal practices related to the upper yard, particularly the infirmary during the early twentieth century. These are but small windows into the archaeology of a very complex heritage resource, and it was a great experience for everyone involved.
Friday 25
13:30 - SEMINAR - Asian Studies Seminar Series : Moving out of the Kitchen” More Information
In this seminar, I will give an overview of the background of the project, and introduce some of the aims of my research. What I am going to present is a study of migration as practiced by an Indonesian ethnic group, the Bugis. The Bugis homeland is the low-land central-western part of Sulawesi Island, Indonesia. As most scholars emphasise the same key word, i.e. ‘sompe’ or ‘passompe’ to describe the Bugis migrants and deny the spirit of ‘mallekke dapureng’ in analysing the Bugis migration. Mallekke dapureng literally means ‘moving out the kitchen’; interpreted as moving the whole family out to another place and not intending to return to the initial home. Although both sompe and mallekke dapureng have similar meaning, they indeed refer to different motives. The typical difference is that mallekke dapureng is permanent; while sompe refers to mobile settlers or migrants. We can distinguish the terms from the destination of Bugis settlers. Thus, my argument is focused on the permanent migration. In this case, I will focus on Bugis migrants in a transmigration area. My aim is to explore the changing meaning of migration in Bugis settlement as mobile migrants become permanent migrants. The motives of these migrants, how they create a new frontier world, and how they penetrate the indigenous community; are among the questions I aiming to answer. Furthermore, I intend to reconstruct the Bugis notion of merantau (lit. to wander) with a new interpretation. By this, the original contribution will be to bring new evidence of the Bugis process of settlement Indonesia.
