17:00 - EVENT - FAKES! : A salon and social event Website | More Information
What makes a good fake? How do we identify fakes? Can technology detect authenticity? How can we detect fake sincerity? What are the legal and ethical implication of fakes? When is a fake better than the real thing?

Please join us for a convivial discussion about the art, craft, and science of fakes hosted by the Centre for the History of Emotions and the Tech and Public Interest research group. In the spirit of a salon, clever, incisive, and unpredictable conversation is guaranteed. Bring your own short (2-3 minute) provocation, performance, or dramatic reading – or just turn up to see where the conversation takes us. To get us started, expert insights on the topic of fakes will be offered by five featured speakers:

Oron Catts (fake meats) | Jani McCutcheon (copyright and authenticity) | Julia Powles (merchants of truth) | Kathryn Prince (fake feelings) | Ted Snell (art fakes)

Participation is free, but registration via the url is imperative for catering purposes (wine! cheese! no fakes!).

18:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Leonardo Da Vinci (1452-1519): enigma and genius Website | More Information
A public lecture by Costantino D’Orazio, Art historian and writer, Rome.

This lecture is part of a year-long series that celebrates the 90th Anniversary of Italian Studies at UWA

2019 marks the 90th anniversary of the teaching of Italian language and culture at The University of Western Australia.

In 1929, Francesco Vanzetti, an idiosyncratic and popular Venetian, offered the first courses in Italian. This was the first appointment of a lecturer in Italian in any Australian university.

This lecture series, supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies and by Italian Studies in the UWA School of Humanities, celebrates aspects of Italian language and culture, past and present.

The UWA Conservatorium of Music is one of Australia’s leading music performance schools. Pinata Percussion is the Conservatorium’s virtuosic ensemble of percussion students, led by award-winning musician Dr Louise Devenish.

15:00 - SEMINAR - Centre for Muslim States and Societies Seminar Series 2019 : The Islamic Republic of Mauritania: yesterday, today and tomorrow More Information
Mauritania stands at the crossroads of modernity, with deep potential tensions between different groups (“white” Maures, “black” Afro-Mauritanians, and “Haratin”), threatening the country’s socio-political stability.

Recent discoveries of world-class hydrocarbon reservoirs offshore southern Mauritania, an area principally peopled by Afro-Mauritanians, further adds to these tensions. This could cause an uprising of a merged portion of the black African population against Maure dominance, with a potential balkanisation of the country in a similar scenario to that of the former Sudan.

This seminar explores these tensions and explains their roots. It will also propose potential remedies that can be formulated as public policies and joint government- industry actions to counteract potential instability.

Profile: Max is a graduate geologist (UNSW, 1975) with 44 years of international experience and has been instrumental in finding and championing the evaluation of significant hydrocarbon and mineral discoveries, most especially in Africa and the Near-East.

He is an “Officer of the National Order of Merit for the Islamic Republic of Mauritania”. This is the second such award given to a foreigner by the Mauritanian Government, the first being to the French President Charles de Gaulle. He was the Honorary Consul for the Republic of Mali in Perth between 2005 and 2016.

Max has a Graduate Diploma in Business (1988), a Masters in International Relations (2010), and a Doctorate in International Affairs awarded with Chancellor’s recommendations in 2015.

Max presently heads African Geopolitics, a socio-political advisory group that assists African governments and foreign companies in the natural resources industries to work together on the African continent. Entry for this event is free. Please register your interest through [email protected]

10:00 - EVENT - Discover the Perkins : The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research is opening its doors to the WA community on Saturday 16 November from 10am - 3.30pm, as part of Open House Perth Website | More Information
The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research is opening its doors to the WA community on Saturday 16 November from 10am - 3.30pm, as part of Open House Perth. The 2019 Perkins open day, entitled ‘Discover the Perkins’, is posing the question “What if...?” Throughout the day, listen to presentations by Perkins researchers in the McCusker Auditorium. Perkins Director, Professor Peter Leedman will give the first talk of the day at 10.50am, posing the question, “What if you could help shape our future?” Don a lab coat and become a scientist for the day, exploring the state-of-the art medical research laboratories. Hear from the leading experts on how they are tackling some of the hardest-to-treat diseases affecting our community, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes and rare genetic diseases. You will see first-hand how your support can drive forward the groundbreaking work happening right here in WA at the Perkins. “Without medical research, there would be no lifesaving discoveries. And without the incredible support and generosity of the people of WA, there would be no medical research”, Professor Leedman said. As well as touring the labs, you will have the chance to ‘speed date a researcher’, giving you the opportunity to ask the experts about their work and how it will impact our future health. Take a virtual reality tour of the life of cell travelling through the body. Then sit down at the lab bench and take part in interactive activities and workshops in the Lotterywest BioDiscovery Centre. Many of the activities have limited spaces, so be sure to book early at https://community.perkins.org.au/discover-the-perkins All funds raised on the day will go directly towards providing the Perkins with a Shaker Incubator; a vital piece of equipment which looks like a small oven and can ‘shake n’ bake’ buckets of bacteria for use in experiments, potentially cooking up a future breakthrough treatment for cancer or diabetes.
