Abstract
UNESCO has declared 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages. As such, this research seminar will discuss several aspects of documenting Indigenous sign systems in Australia and the Pacific in order to preserve cultural heritage.
Part one focuses on Indigenous alternate sign languages in Australia, in the Northern Territory and Western Australia. Current work on Yolŋu Sign Language, Arnhem Land Signed Lingua Franca, and Miriwoong Sign Language will be presented.
Part two covers Indigenous sign languages in the Pacific Islands region, focussing on Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. Similar to spoken languages, these sign languages are endangered and will be replaced by foreign sign languages if no action is taken to save them.

The Roles of Arts, Social Values and Science in Mining

The Roles of Arts, Social Values and Science in Mining


Add to calendar

Presenter:  College of Indigenous Futures, Arts & Society, Charles Darwin University, Adelaide Law School, University of Adelaide, SA & #ARTLABDARWIN

Date: Aug 20, 2019 to Aug 24, 2019

Location:  Charles Darwin University, Casuarina, NT

The Roles of Arts, Social Values and Science in Mining

Mining in Australian land is a significant contributor to Australian culture and economy. Many different ores and minerals are mined throughout the country. Although mining booms have created social wealth and encouraged immigration, a number of mining practices have raised environmental issues and faced social contestation. The aim of this workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary forum to engage with key social and philosophical questions about the arts and sciences of mining. Specifically, what are the social values and narratives that justify and guide mining in Australia? What can be done better in mining practices? What do people involved in the discussion about mining know about the sciences and technologies used in mining? What are the values of the material by-products and other outputs of mining activities? Are there misconceptions about mining and geosciences? What can artists and scholars in the humanities and law contribute to the debate about governance of mining practices? To address these questions, the workshop will gather an interdisciplinary team comprising of artists, scientists, philosophers and social scientists. In
addition, this workshop is devised to encourage interdisciplinary scholarly discussion amongst the participants of the artistic project “Still Lives: A Beautiful Science”.

ABSTRACT
In the late 1980’s Josephine Estill (1921-2010), scientist and founder of the Estill Voice Training (Jo Estill, Klimek, Obert, & Steinhauer, 2005b), suggested that the Dynamic System Theory (DST) could be applied to the complex system of the vocal instrument. The Dynamical Systems Theory (ColomboDougovito) applied to biomechanics (Kelso, 1995) is the adaptation of motor behaviour changes through a serious of tasks, organism and environmental constraints. Within the DST, Attractor States
(AS) are the conditions of stability of any structure forming each dynamical system. Like the human body rebalances itself when standing on a moving surface, so the voice readapts itself according to each vocal task by moving into a new condition of stability (a new attractor state). According to this theory, trained singers, as opposed to non-trained singers, make structural choices to over-ride primordial attractor states.

Using the Compulsory Figures and the Voice Qualities (Jo Estill, Klimek, Obert, & Steinhauer, 2005a) of EVT as the paradigm for evaluation, this research aims to analyse from an anatomical, linguistical, ethnographic and sociological point of view, the physiological changes that non-trained singers make when singing, and how these changes are influenced by the background and the lifestyle of the singer. It will contribute to understand what vocal structures are associated to different cultural background, different gender and different lifestyle. Furthermore, this research aims to determine which cultural elements influence, stimulate and develop the singing ability.
