17:30 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Religious freedom and the LGBTIQA+ community Website | More Information
The 2017 marriage equality survey stirred up the discussion around the rights of LGBTIQA+ people and religious freedoms, leading to the Ruddock review and the draft package of religious freedom bills currently doing the rounds.

The proposed Religious Discrimination Bill is being framed as simultaneously both deeply necessary, and making only conservative changes to existing legislation. But what does the bill actually contain? What does it mean for LGBTIQA+ and religious communities? What about the impact on the people who belong to both?

Join discrimination law expert Liam Elphick for a mini-lecture unpacking the bill and how it relates to existing protections, followed by a panel discussion with LGBTIQA+ people and their allies from faith communities as they discuss what the bill would mean for them and their experiences living in the intersection of their identities.

9:00 - CONFERENCE - Mental Health in the Medieval and Early Modern World : Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group/UWA Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies Annual Conference Website | More Information
Modern stereotypes abound regarding how mental health was perceived during the medieval and early modern period ranging from mental illness being caused by sin to the idea that the attainment of mental well-being could only be achieved through the balancing of the bodily humours. But mental health was a more complex and expansive subject of discourse throughout the period that was widely explored in medical treatises, religious tracts and sermons, and prominent in art and literature, which speaks to a more subtle understanding of the human mental state.

This conference aims to look at both the changing and continuing perceptions of mental health throughout the medieval and early modern period.
