14:30 - EVENT - School of Social Sciences and Anthropology & Sociology Seminar : METAPHORS OF MIGRATION: A CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS OF THE INTERSECTIONS BETWEEN IMMIGRATION, RACE AND THE AUSTRALIAN NATION More Information
Post Fieldwork Presentation - My thesis argues that the construction of immigrant Otherness is, and historically has been, foundational to ethno-nationalist discourses of Australian national identity. Whether as invasions, floods or swarms, the metaphoric construction of racialized immigrant outgroups has consistently been utilized to naturalise and legitimate an Anglo-white national in-group.

1 Sept - Joshua Bamford | Music as a tool for social bonding: from 6 MYA to the COVID-19 era

Abstract: A growing body of literature suggests that synchronised activity (such as in music and dance) may lead to social bonding between individuals and within groups – known as the synchrony-bonding effect. This effect may have given rise to the array of synchronised activity present in all human cultures, as a replacement for the social grooming behaviour that is used to establish bonds in most other primates. Music and dance may be more efficient than grooming by allowing interaction with multiple others simultaneously, and at a distance. In my current research, I investigate the precise cognitive mechanisms that underpin the synchrony-bonding effect, attempting to explain why humans enjoy being in synchrony with others, leading to increased trust and feelings of affiliation. However, COVID restrictions have raised new questions about how people maintain social bonds in times of social distancing. In light of our “new normal”, I will discuss contemporary approaches of music making that attempt to overcome zoom-induced asynchrony.

Bio: An alumnus of UWA, Joshua Bamford's research on the origins of musicality have taken him to Finland, Austria and, most recently, to the UK where he is pursuing a DPhil in Cognitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at the University of Oxford. He is currently in Perth as a visiting researcher at the UWA School of Psychological Science. In his spare time he sings opera, conducts folk song choirs, and goes swing dancing.

12:00 - EVENT - Lessons from the Banking Royal Commission for the COVID-19 world Website | More Information
In the age of COVID-19, the Banking Royal Commission seems a lifetime ago. But fresh scandals ranging from the Ruby Princess debacle to regulation of dodgy hand ‘sanitisers’ demonstrate the Commission’s lessons for broader, effective corporate regulation remain critically important. Within the financial sector itself, regulators have been active, pursuing headline cases such as the Westpac money laundering fiasco, CBA’s defective ‘AgriAdvantage Plus’ packages and NAB’s now notorious ‘Introducer Program’. Much work clearly remains to be done. This panel event seeks to identify and explore the ongoing challenges from legal, business and regulatory perspectives. What are the best ways to ensure delinquent corporate citizens are held to account? How should Australia go about the task of overhauling and reforming existing complicated and inefficient systems of legal regulation of powerful corporates? Beyond reforming regulation, what are the ways in which corporations themselves are better able to lead the case for cultural change in their own workforces and boards?
