THIS SEMINAR IS NOW AT CAPACITY. YOU CAN STILL VIEW THE EVENT LIVE ONLINE VIA WEBEX (JOIN THE MEETING) AND THE PRESENTATION WILL BE RECORDED AND UPLOADED TO OUR VIMEO CHANNEL (HTTPS://VIMEO.COM/NORTHERNINSTITUTE).

Abstract: The NT is one of the most linguistically diverse places in the world, with nearly 70% of Aboriginal Territorians speaking an Aboriginal language as their primary language. Not only does language serve as an essential tool for clear communication, language use and recognition is a powerful vehicle for social inclusion or exclusion.
This seminar will articulate some of  the ways in which the unconscious and deliberate dominance of English undermines good governance and democracy in the NT. The seminar will use the NT Legislative Assembly’s current standing order restricting the use of non-English languages in Parliament as a case study to illustrate the politics of language in the NT, and the implications of English language dominance in government on speakers of minority languages.
The seminar will briefly canvas approaches to language issues in other contexts, such as the legal system, education and health, together with various approaches taken in other countries to more appropriately reflect the multi-lingual fabric of society. Ultimately, this seminar hopes to solicit concrete ideas about how the NT can better reflect its rich multi-lingual character, and to find persuasive ways of articulating the benefits of pro-actively including non-English languages – particularly in places of power.

About Ben Grimes: Ben Grimes is a lawyer and linguist who specialises in communication issues in the criminal justice system and cross-cultural legal education. Ben worked as criminal lawyer with the North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency in the NT, including two years based in Nhulunbuy, East Arnhem Land. As a Community Legal Educator, Ben developed significant experience working with Law and Justice groups in remote communities and developed a legal development methodology combining principles of Aboriginal learning styles, bilingual education, cross-cultural communication and participatory development. As the Program Manager for the NT Government Aboriginal Interpreter Service, Ben managed 50 full-time staff and 350 casual interpreters across the NT, and developed the Bush Court interpreting system used in the NT and legal training for Aboriginal interpreters.
Ben has been a major contributor to numerous protocols and policy documents such as the NT Law Society Indigenous Protocols (2nd ed), the NT Supreme Court Interpreter Protocols, the NT Local Court Interpreter Protocols and the Police General Orders on Interpreters and Translators. Ben is a signatory to the 'Communication of Rights' international working group that promotes best practice in communication of legal rights with people who speak English as a second language, and Ben managed the NT Government project to interpret and record suspects' rights into 18 Aboriginal languages for use by NT Police. Ben is also the Managing Editor of the Plain English Legal Dictionary (NT Criminal Law). Ben also has an MA in Applied Linguists, and as part of his MA conducted experimental research to identify differences in how Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal witnesses tell the story of the same event, and the legal implications of these linguistic differences. Ben speaks a number of languages and is also heavily involved in bilingual education and language advocacy in West Timor, Indonesia.

Going beyond the surface of diversity: parallels of practices and prospects of common grounds - A personal reflection on Indian and Indigenous cultural fabrics and undercurrents 

Ganesh Koramannil
Lecturer, College of Indigenous Futures, Arts & Society, Charles Darwin University
PhD Student, Northern Institute, Charles Darwin University 

Abstract
Growing up in India makes someone simultaneously multilingual and multicultural. Further, a complex yet liberal religious worldview imparted could make one uber-sensitive to linguistic, cultural and spiritual comparatives. Migrating from such a background to the differently complex linguistic, cultural and spiritual landscape of Australia makes it inevitable that the mind starts viewing life from two different cultural vantage points, traverse between the past and the present lives, the Indian and the Australian personal realities. This experiential insight activates an eagerness to understand the prevalent cultural maintenance in both societies. This paper provides an exclusive personal perspective of Indian and Indigenous Australian cultural allusions and argues for the creation of common grounds for cultural cohabitation to seek intercultural understanding and to design cultural bridges.

His research has had the perspective of an inquirer from an ESL background. His background as an ESL student, ESL educator, Cambridge ESOL Examiner, and his teaching practices in Higher Education, extensively influences his research interests. His current research investigates the impact of English language proficiency on Indigenous students from EALD backgrounds in accessing university education. Ganesh also has a keen interest in Indigenous and Indian arts and cultural domains.

Are you listening? A case study of the factors influencing the Indigenous vote in Northern Territory elections 2005 to 2016

Abstract
The electorates in the Northern Territory are usually divided into three groups – the Greater Darwin electorates, including Palmerston and other dormitory suburbs, the urban regional, consisting of the electorates covering Katherine and Alice Springs, and the remote electorates, covering the rest of the Territory. The remote electorates have a large percentage of Indigenous voters – ranging from 43% to 90% in 2016, In the eight elections to 2008, following the expansion of the Legislative Assembly in 1983, the seven remote electorates have tended to be strong supporters of the Australian Labor Party (ALP). In four of the eight elections five ALP candidates were successful and in the other four elections, all seven ALP candidates succeeded.
In the Territory election of 2012, after it had won the reins of government in three successive polls, the ALP lost office to the Country Liberal Party (CLP) when five of the seven remote electorates changed allegiance. None of the eighteen seats in the rest of the Territory moved to another party. After four years in office, the CLP lost power in 2016, losing all but two of the eighteen seats it held after the 2012 election. Five of the seven remote seats changed party, although not all five returned to the ALP.
The aim of this project is to identify the factors influencing Indigenous voting patterns in these key election outcomes by identifying the answers to three questions:
1. How did voting behaviour change in the remote electorates of the Northern Territory in the elections 2008-2016?
2. What were the major factors driving those changes?
3. Which, if any, of these factors were uniquely Indigenous?

Biography
Michael is a retired accountant who has devoted most of his retirement to date studying various aspects of Indigenous life and culture in the Northern Territory. In 2015, he completed a degree in Indigenous Knowledge and followed this with Honours in 2017.
Michael is a widower with 2 adult children and five grandchildren, three of whom live in Germany. He combines his enthusiasm for travel and music by carting his tuba to jazz festivals and schützenfests both nationally and internationally.
Michael’s thesis for the Honours degree researched the efficacy of mutual respect in successful inter-cultural interaction. The approach to this research and thesis has been coloured by a belief that only with mutual understanding and respect between cultures can fair and successful reconciliation be achieved, a belief that forms the underlying motivation for undertaking this research. The research is under the guidance of three amazing supervisors, Dr Perry Morrison, Dr Rolf Gerritsen and Dr Kate Golebiowska.

Future sustainability, innovation and marketing 
Unsustainable business activities, rising global population, as well as growth in consumption and convenience seeking behaviour generate complex environmental and social issues. The most urgent include pollution, climate change, water and food insecurity, and the noncommunicable disease epidemic. Innovative products and practices that serve both organisational and consumer self-interests, as well as wider social and environmental goals, are keys to resolving these issues.
 
In this presentation, Professor Greenland encapsulates the key sustainability challenges confronting the Northern Territory, Australia and the world today. He brings to life a variety of  sustainability themes using his research on education, manufacturing innovation, agricultural water management, energy conservation, as well as the marketing of harmful products. The complexity surrounding sustainability and innovation is explored, including the barriers to innovation adoption, as well as unintended consequences that hinder positive social and environmental outcomes.
 
 
Darker sides to innovation are also discussed, with businesses and marketers often using innovation to perpetuate detrimental impacts. The rise of data analytics for consumer psychographic profiling and social media marketing also raises concern about the integrity of commercial and political initiatives relating to environmental and social responsibility.
 
 
There are no utopian answers to save the world. However, this presentation will stimulate thinking about the urgent need for innovation and sustainability, as well as the importance of more effective future industry legislation and regulation. The need for universities to assert their industry and society watchdog role is also highlighted, along with their responsibility to produce socially responsible graduates capable of driving sustainability in the future.

A journey to greater Traditional Owner engagement in marine science

A journey to greater Traditional Owner engagement in marine science


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Traceylee Forester, Indigenous Partnerships Coordinator, Australian Institute of Marine Science

Date: Oct 29, 2018

Time: 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Contact person:  Northern Institute
T: 08 8946 6854

Abstract
The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is Australia’s tropical marine research agency. We believe that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the Australian Institute of Marine Science have a strong and productive shared future in marine science. We recognise that natural synergies exist between AIMS’ research interests and the management and protection of Sea Country interests of Traditional Owners on the coasts and continental shelf of northern Australia – from Exmouth to the southern Great Barrier Reef. We believe in the importance of working hand-in-hand with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to develop a better understanding of each other and our marine environments. We have benefited first-hand from the mutual learning that comes from working closely with Traditional Owners and are committed to building further meaningful relationships based on trust and respect and achieving mutually beneficial outcomes from sharing experience and knowledge. Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement Strategy is our commitment to this outcome.
This seminar will present aspects of AIMS’ Strategic Plan, the engagement indicators and how these aspirations interact with Traditional Owners around the coastal areas of tropical Australia. This presentation will also include: engagement from the perspective of a Traditional Owner group from Cape York, QLD; consideration of the cultural protocols and restrictions that may impact on building meaningful partnerships with the First Nation Peoples; interaction of scientists and researchers with Traditional Owners, particularly regarding the intersection of western science and traditional knowledge; and, is it possible to merge the two schools of thought?
