This seminar will discuss four Indigenous Studies projects awarded funding under the inaugural Swinburne Indigenous Studies Small Research Projects Scheme in 2016.

The seminar will analyse each of the projects, as well as looking at issues such as engagement with Indigenous peoples, research ethics, reciprocity and self-determination.

There will be a panel consisting of the five project leaders.

Professor Andrew Gunstone, Executive Director (Reconciliation Strategy and Leadership) will chair the panel.

The project leaders and their projects are:

  • Josie Arnold  Wurundjeri Women and Sport: a video documentary
  • Samantha Edwards-Vandenhoek  Building Social Capital and Fostering Innovation through Digital Place-Making in the Ramingining Aboriginal Community, Central Arnhem Land
  • Karen Hughes  Photographing the Ngarrindjeri Fringe Camps: an exercise in history and healing
  • Andrew Peters and Justin Trounson  Port Phillip Prison Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Men's Homework Club

For those wishing to apply for the 2017 Indigenous Research Grants and Indigenous Teaching Grants, this seminar is an excellent opportunity to learn about the 2016 funded projects.
