Public lecture: Maluku, its socio-cultural context as an archipelago community

Public lecture: Maluku, its socio-cultural context as an archipelago community


Add to calendar

Presenter:  Professor Dr Aholiab Watloly, S.Pak. M.Hum. Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Pattimura University, Ambon, Indonesia

Date: Oct 10, 2019

Time: 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Location:  Savanna Room, Yellow 1.2.48, Charles Darwin University (Casuarina Campus)

Abstract
Maluku is a region of Indonesia that represents an archipelago community, a maritime region surrounded by thousands of islands. The oceans and land form a whole and systemic unity of the cosmos, where the sea acts as a link. The sea shapes the ecology, history, economics, socio-cultural, and politics of the islands of Maluku. This natural bond between the islands characterize Maluku as a socio-geographic unit that is in synergy with one another, forming a unified system. It forms the perspective, way of life and ways of being or the mode of existence of each community among the islands.
The dominance of the sea affects life on the land in terms of ecological diversity, community, culture, religion, family- and exchange system, history, development and other areas of life. The sea becomes a liaison space for the social and to build a mutually supporting, pattern of horizontal relations across the islands. The communities live, develop, and defend themselves as inhabitants of small islands on a social basis, founded on the uniqueness of the geography and the diversity of ecology. For that reason, Maluku is called the “Region of Thousand Islands”, and across the pluralistic and polyethnic community, exists a system of identity melding and crossing as reflected in the concept of “Orang Basudara/Family”.

Spatial microsimulation technique for constructing a spatially disaggregated population microdataset

Kazumasa Hanaoka, Associate Professor, Department of Geography, Ritsumeikan University, Japan

Abstract
Spatial microsimulation is a technique for constructing spatially disaggregated microdataset by combining multiple data sources such as small-area census tables and records sampled from a large survey. A number of applications have been developed for understanding spatial variations of water demand, elderly care, consumption, health related behavior and poverty at the neighborhood level.

In this presentation, A/Pro Kazumasa Hanaoka will introduce spatial microsimulation techniques and applications followed by the recent development of spatial microsimulations by using the samples of anonymized records from the Japanese population census and the comprehensive health survey. A spatially disaggregated microdataset was developed in a way that it agrees to small-areas census statistics by a combinatorial optimization algorithm and also, the microdata of 120 million individuals living in about 200 thousand districts were estimated with standard desktop PCs. Applications in disaster analysis and health geography will be presented in order to show that microdata analysis provides useful information about detailed neighborhood’s characteristics for planning resource allocation.

About Associate Professor Kazumasa Hanaoka
Kazumasa Hanaoka is an associate professor in the Department of Geography, Ritsumeikan University, Japan. He has been a deputy director of the Institute of Disaster Mitigation for Urban Cultural Heritage, Ritsumeikan University since 2018. From 2012 to 2016, he was an assistant professor at the International Research Institute of Disaster Science, Tohoku University, Japan.

The Vice-Chancellor and Principal Dr Michael Spence and Mrs Eileen Perkins and family are delighted to invite you to attend the Dr Charles Perkins AO Memorial Oration and Memorial Prize 2019.

Aminila bit tjan kin-ning wurrkama gu?
Are we all working together with a united voice for treaty & truth?
Oration keynote by Associate Professor Linda Payi Ford

The Tyikma (Indigenous) and non-Indigenous cultures are akin to joint arrangements and ought to be reciprocal. Oral and non-verbal traditional cultural ways of nurturing and caring for the nourishment of our spiritual beings in the landscape must sustain our Tyikma (Indigenous) ways of knowing, being and doing. These are not unencumbered by non-productive elements or barriers to voice, treaty and truth.

The ultimate aim is to work together for a shared future – a vision laid down by our ancestral beings and those that followed in the past, such as Dr Charles Perkins AO, for a vision of hope. Charles' hope was to provide a better future for his children and countrymen across this nation and elsewhere. He was an inspiration. He led the famous Freedom Rides in the 60's and travelled abroad to influence people and to change the way people thought about First Australians.

The way to communicate our hope is on a platform that continues to build what iconic figures have started. The actions of Charles Perkins weaved onto existing threads that continue the representation of our united voices, treaty and truth. These are depicted in our Australian and global societies today through people, policies and places.

Today, we are the ones to continue making the choices about which threads to add to the social fabric of Indigenous Affairs. It's about the words, the languages and non-verbal communication methods we use to design and develop our future people, policy and place.

PFAS and Fluorine-Free Firefighting Foams: Performance vs Environment and Health

The firefighting foam industry is in turmoil.  With the decision to phase out the production of perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and the subsequent restrictions on PFOS and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) by the Stockholm Convention, the industry has transitioned to either the fluorine-free foams (F3) or shorter-fluorocarbon-chain (C6) PFAS foams. 

There are opponents and supporters of the two formulations.

On one hand, PFAS foams do not biodegrade and persist in the environment, a situation that poses unacceptable risk to large parts of the community and several environmental NGOs.

On the other hand, while fluorine-free foams satisfy a range of international standards, they do not pass the US military specification, which makes them unacceptable for defence use. 

For civilian purposes, fluorine-free foams require higher application rates and demand careful redesigning of the suppression systems.

So where does this leave us in selecting a firefighting foam for a practical application? Do we want the millions of plane passengers each day and petrochemical plants protected by the most environmentally friendly firefighting option or the most effective at suppressing fire.

Professor Bogdan Dlugogorski is the Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President, Research and Innovation at Charles Darwin University.

He is a Chartered Engineer and a Chartered Chemist with a distinguished record as a researcher, inventor and academic leader.

Professor Dlugogorski joined CDU in May 2019, having previously held the positions of Dean of School of Engineering and Information Technology at Murdoch University in Perth and Director of Priority Research Centre for Energy at the University of Newcastle, Australia. 

He holds a DSc in Fire Safety Science and Engineering (Newcastle), PhD and MEng in Chemical Engineering (Montreal, McGill), and undergraduate degrees in Chemical Engineering and Geophysics (Calgary).  He has expertise in process safety, fire and explosion safety, extractive metallurgy and environment protection, especially in formation of toxic products in combustion processes.

Professor Dlugogorski is a Fellow of Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering, Combustion Institute, Society of Fire Protection Engineers, Engineers Australia and Royal Australian Chemical Institute.  He is Immediate Past Chairman of International Association for Fire Safety Science.
