17:30 - EVENT - Panel: Migrant and Refugee Health : Harmony Week Event - Panel discussion of health issues for migrants and refugees in WA focussing on social aspects of health. Website | More Information
Migrants to Australia often experience diverse health and mental health needs which may not be met by mainstream services. Addressing such needs involves understanding complex social and cultural specifics. Instead of treating people as generic bodies, a social approach to health recognises that individual and collective histories, migration stories, settlement conditions, cultural practices and social positioning affect health outcomes. Taking social perspectives into account can help us ensure inclusive health and mental healthcare. So what are the key issues? And what are the solutions?

19:00 - TALK - Friends of the library : The Panorama of Constantinople by Melchior Lorck Website | More Information
Dr. Nigel Westbrook trained in architecture in Melbourne, and later at the Architecture Association in London, where he was exposed to the rich architectural history of Europe. He had a career as a practising architect in London and Melbourne before crossing over to the University of Western Australia to take up a position in the Architecture school in 1993. He is now an Associate Professor, teaching and researching in architectural history and theory, and Associate Head (Research) at the School of Design. Overseas studio teaching (1994-1997) in Greece and Turkey led to an interest in the cultural exchanges between the Middle East and the West, and commencement of a PhD on the subject of the Classical survivals in the Byzantine Great Palace in Constantinople, now Istanbul, as the song goes. He is currently completing a book that grew out of the PhD, another co-edited book on Late Antique palaces, and a third, jointly written book on modern architecture and heritage in Iran, from the late 1960s to the late 1990s. All three books examine the subject of cultural exchanges. In the course of searching for documents that describe the transition from Byzantine to Ottoman culture in Istanbul, Nigel came across a mid-sixteenth century manuscript drawn by a Danish artist, Melchior Lorck, which depicts the city as it existed in 1559, a century after the Ottoman conquest. The book has proven to be a treasure trove of documentary evidence for long-disappeared monuments in the city.

In his talk, Nigel will discuss how the artist encountered the city, what his tools of the trade would have been, and what the manuscript, a panoramic view some 12 metres long, tells us about this fascinating and ancient city.

12:30 - PRESENTATION - Physics to fish with some whales on the side! Second International Indian Ocean Expedition 110°E repeat line : Prof. Lynnath Beckley presents on the month-long voyage that will repeat the 1960s Indian Ocean investigation. Website | More Information
In the 1960s, Australia made a significant contribution to the first International Indian Ocean Expedition. Now, nearly six decades later, a second Expedition is underway, and in May 2019 a multi-institutional team of 30 oceanographers will head offshore from Fremantle with the Australian Research Vessel Investigator to study the oceanography of the SE Indian Ocean. On this month-long voyage we will to repeat the 110°E line from the 1960s, examine multi-decadal change in the physics, chemistry and biology of the water column, investigate microbes and biogeochemistry especially related to nitrogen and study the pelagic food web from plankton through to mesopelagic lantern fishes. The voyage will also enable ground truthing of bio-optical quantities like sea surface colour recorded by satellites as well as an acoustic survey of whales. For comparison, some of our work will use the original techniques employed during the first Expedition but these will be supplemented by a host of modern techniques and electronic technology that will assist us in better understanding the pelagic ecosystem at the western edge of Australia’s Exclusive Economic Zone.
