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]

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.

20:00 - PERFORMANCE - DESTINATIONS: Ives, Reich and Milligan : A rare performance of profound American masterworks and a new composition by UWA Graduate Kate Milligan Website | More Information
Join the Perth Orchestra Project and conductor Izaak Wesson for a programme of profound American music from the 20th century, as well a new composition by Perth-born composer Kate Milligan. POP is enormously proud to present this concert of masterworks by Charles Ives and Steve Reich, both of whom meditate on the fragility, duality, displacement and mysticism of the human condition in their respective works.

Ives’ brief but intensely introspective The Unanswered Question was a work decades ahead of its time, which provides a stunning opening to the concert. Reich’s Different Trains is a monolith of 20th century music and considered a seminal memorial piece to the Holocaust. The concert concludes with a new piece by UWA composition graduate Kate Milligan for flutes, strings and electronics. The world premiere of her work Migrations is sure to provide a poignant link to our contemporary time and place.
