Join the Centre for the Study of the Inland for a two-day symposium exploring connections between sovereignty, survivance and occupation of place. With speakers from around Australia and the globe, we will present panels and roundtable discussions examining a range of topics including: the opportunities that space and mobility frameworks offer settler colonial histories; ways of centring the experiences of marginalised peoples and places; and the impact of Indigenous studies research and methodologies.
Held on Dja Dja Wurrung Country in central Victoria, the symposium aims to move discussion away from a traditional focus on coastal metropoles and bring new insight into connections joining inland spaces with other ‘peripheries’ across the world.
