Knowledge Intersections II: Exploring the Research of Central Australia - Exploring the Research of Central Australia Symposium

This one-day research symposium is convened to showcase central Australian research and offer professional learning and networking opportunities to researchers working in central Australian contexts. It particularly welcomes participation from researchers at the beginning of their careers.

The theme of ‘Knowledge Intersections’ originated in the 2017 symposium of that name, hosted by Bachelor Institute and tied into the NT Writers’ Festival concept of ’Crossings – Iwerre-Atherre’. The language in the festival concept comes from local Arrernte people who interpreted crossings to mean two roads meeting, neither blocking nor erasing the other.

Local researchers will explore the interdisciplinary and intercultural; aspects of their work by responding to questions such as:

  • What counts as ‘ sustainable research in central Australian contexts?
  • Where might ethics and suitable practices converge?
  • How can arts-based research ‘mark new world’?
  • What can happen when ‘art’ and research’ meet?
