Urbanization processes and regional migration patterns in sparsley populated peripheral areas

Linus Lundström
Doctor of Philosophy candidate
Northern Institute, College of Indigenous Futures, Arts and Society
Charles Darwin University

Abstract:
Rapid urbanisation in sparsely populated northern peripheries has been common in many developed countries. A few northern cities have grown substantially in recent decades while many rural areas have declined demographically and economically. How these growing ‘cities of the north’ affects development of for their respective rural hinterlands is not well understood. Several characteristics are present in many such regions such as small population numbers; long distances; natural resource (extractive) heavy industry; a reliance on public jobs (health care, education and research, governance, military, to name a few); large distances to the central national markets; and the presence of Indigenous communities.
He is interested in regional development policy making in the context of northern peripheries. What conditions, preconceptions and discourses shape the boundaries of policy space? Who are the stakeholders, and who has a voice? To what extent is there path dependency and what does that mean for policy? What are the roles of governmental, political and other official organizations and bodies?
The research aims to monitor how various policy decisions affect human residential, labour, and visiting migration patterns that exist between the cities and their respective hinterlands, and how such patterns have evolved.

Bio
Linus is a PhD student affiliated with Umeå University (UmU) in Sweden and Charles Darwin University (CDU) in Australia. His research interests revolve around regional development, rurality and urbanisation, community empowerment, and the specifics of the Arctic context. He resides in the Arctic Research Centre at Umeå University. His PhD research is done as part of the Cities of the North project, which is a collaborative project between UmU and CDU. He is investigating regional development policies in sparsely populated northern regions across the globe, as well as migration patterns and urbanisation processes with a focus on Västerbotten in Sweden, and Northern Territory in Australia. Currently his supervisors are Andrew Taylor with the Demography team at the Northern Institute and Peter Sköld who is the Director of the Sami Research Centre at Umea University.

Designing and Planning for Service Delivery: Ground-up Policy and Evaluation Design Work

Matthew Campbell
Doctor of Philosophy Candidate
Northern Institute, College of Indigenous Futures, Arts and Society
Charles Darwin University

Abstract
Services are provided by governments to citizens on the basis that they make a difference in the lives of those citizens. In northern Australia Aboriginal people are the recipients of a wide range of services, mostly facilitated through contracts between governments and private and non-Government service providers. My thesis will explore the relationship between the policy context, service design and delivery processes, and outcomes, for the range of stakeholders who become connected through service provision. It is based in on-ground ethnographic work in organisations concerned with situated interrelations of policy development, program design and service delivery. This examination is grounded in my own experiential participation in the design and evaluation of NT services delivery designs and will develop analyses that may assist those seeking to grapple with social and ethical realities emerging in human services delivery and design when these realities are seen as emergent within situated socio-epistemic practices that may come to solidify in better or worse ways for various participants involved.

BIO
Matthew is a PhD candidate who has worked in a range of settings northern Australia over the last thirty years. He is interested in how Aboriginal people and others develop ways of working together in which their differences are not only respected and acknowledged, but used productively to develop change on the ground that people value.
He previously worked the Research Coordinator at Tangentyere Council, based in Alice Springs where he and his Aboriginal colleagues conducted a range of research projects, mainly in the Alice Springs Town Camps. These projects had a dual focus: to involve Aboriginal people in all stages of the research process, strengthening Aboriginal knowledge making, leadership and governance; and to ensure that the research produced tangible, beneficial change for Town Camp residents on their own terms.

The application of contemporary geographic approaches and techniques to understanding population change in sparsely populated areas

David Karacsonyi
Doctor of Philosophy
College of Indigenous Futures , Arts and Society
Charles Darwin University

Summary
Northern sparsely populated areas (SPAs), such as Northern Territory in Australia, are important for economic and strategic purposes, still it is little known how population change, economic conjunctures, and boom and bust cycles are influential in the future prospects of these places. This thesis will examine populations in SPAs to better understand the spatiotemporal patterns and diversity of their populations. The fundaments of the proposed research are based on the knowledge of remote populations established by two recent publications, Demography at the edge (Carson et al. 2011) and Settlements at the edge (Taylor et al. 2016). The assumption of the present study is that spatial patterns may exist within SPAs similar to those in non-SPAs based on Tobler’s (1970) first law of geography, even though SPAs are considered ‘different’, ‘disconnected’ and ‘discontinuous’ by Carson et al. (2011) and Taylor et al. (2016). The overall ambition of this study is to analyse spatial patterns by quantitative geographical and geographical information system (GIS) methods. The focus of the study will be particularly on those cases when SPAs were exposed to external shocks or systematic changes. The anticipated contribution of this study is a theoretical model explaining SPAs as spatiotemporal constructs.

BIO
David Karacsonyi is a geographer, completed his human geography studies at Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest, Hungary) in 2009. Since then he worked at the Geographical Institute of Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest. David is interested in the geography of peripheral and rural areas and has conducted his research in Ukraine and Belarus, studying rural spaces and their populations. He was an editor of book-atlas ‘Belarus in Maps’ published in 2017 by Hungarian Academy of Sciences. He was also visiting researcher at Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography, Leipzig, Germany (2009), at the Department of Geography, National Taiwan University in Taipei (2013, 2017) as well as at Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan (2014-2015). In Japan he studied the impact of Fukushima and Chernobyl disasters on spatial population trends.

Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm

Contact person:  Victoria Stroud
T: Not available
E: Victoria.Stroud@telethonkids.org.au

Location:  Charles Darwin University (Casuarina Campus)

Following-on from a gathering in Humpty-Doo in August 2018, we invite you to come together to share ideas on building the foundations for a strong coalition of First Nations, community researchers.

This two-day gathering is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community researchers and project teams to share their diverse experiences, expertise and ideas to support high quality grassroots, community-based research. We advocate that research must better reflect community values and priorities in both setting research priorities and the way we work within communities. United by a sense of respect, collaboration, advocacy and activism this is an opportunity to open the discussion to more community researchers. As a group we hope to have national reach and attention, uniting as one voice.

This activity is unfunded, so you would need to fund your own way in Darwin. We will share delicious vegetarian lunches together, so please tell us your dietary needs.

For more information & to confirm your interest please email: Victoria.Stroud@telethonkids.org.au

A Top End STS Seminar: Feral Atlas The More-Than-Human Anthropocene

A Top End STS Seminar: Feral Atlas The More-Than-Human Anthropocene


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Assoc. Prof. Jennifer Deger

Date: Jun 25, 2019

Time: 3:30pm to 4:30pm

Contact person:  Top End STS
T: +61 8 8946 7468
E: thenortherninstitute@cdu.edu.au

Location:  Savannah Room (Yellow 1.2.48), Charles Darwin University

Feral Atlas is an interactive, web-based experiment in environmental storytelling. Conceived and curated by Anna Tsing, Jennifer Deger, Alder Keleman-Saxana and Feifei Zhou, Feral Atlas combines art, science and humanities perspectives to reveal the un-designed effects of human infrastructure projects. At the heart of the site will be a series of reports by researchers on particular “feral” ecologies, that is, ecologies that have been encouraged by human infrastructures, but which develop and spread beyond human control. Feral Atlas argues that, taken together, these field-based observations offer a description of the more-than-human Anthropocene. In this presentation, Jennifer will introduce the key ideas that drive the site and discuss ways of orchestrating a performative argument through digital architecture.

About Assoc. Prof. Jennifer Deger
Jennifer Deger is an anthropologist, filmmaker and occasional curator compelled by the permeable boundaries between art and anthropology. She is a Tropical Research Leader at James Cook University where she heads the Creative Ecologies research theme at The Cairns Institute. Jennifer is a founding member of Miyarrka Media, an arts collective based in Gapuwiyak, NT. Miyarrka Media have made a number of award winning films and exhibitions and will soon be publishing their first book, Phone & Spear: A Yuta Anthropology (Goldsmiths, 2019) As a member of the Feral Atlas Collective, Jennifer is currently working on projects for the Istanbul Biennial and Sharjah Architecture Triennial. Feral Atlas will be published in 2020 (Stanford Digital).

Hope and a Decolonising Pedagogy

Abstract
The current analytic frames that are enacted within the work of the academy often make it difficult to engage honourably in intercultural contexts—both in teaching and in research.  As a non-indigenous person working in an interesting corner of the academy where other ways of knowing, including those of Indigenous Australians, are valued and sometimes privileged, I am confronted with an important disconnect this causes on a regular basis. Academics (and many others in the broader community) are empowered by these frames to hold positions and make powerful and authoritative claims. This institutionally positions them as colonising agents in the effecting their knowledge work, often despite their best intentions.
Knowledge making at work in the academy and in our broader community both enables, and condemns simultaneously, the colonising work I perpetuate in the classroom and in my day-to-day interactions with difference. I seek to enact a ‘methodology of hope’ to reorientate the analytical frame for my work as a way of addressing (and holding onto) the disconcertment that I encounter, making it central to the processes of knowledge-making in intercultural spaces.  As an academic, I want to know how this could play out in the classroom. I aim to examine the ways in which this different analytic frame, a methodology of hope, might support decolonising pedagogic practices – the ways we engage with and do difference in the academy and the ways in which we also sensitise others to do the same.

About Greg Williams
Greg is a senior lecturer in the InSPIRE Lab of the College of Indigenous Futures, Arts and Society. He has experience across VET and Higher Education in areas related to Indigenous education and more particularly education at the interface between ‘western scientific’ (what might be call objectivist or uniformative) knowledge making and Indigenous knowledge making practices. Currently, he coordinates postgraduate programs in the College and his research centres on the use of narrative as a foundation for developing and enacting pedagogies in intercultural learning contexts.
