2016 Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Program Conference

2016 Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Program Conference
Wednesday 9 March 2016

Australian Centre for Indigenous History PhD student Rob Paton has won one of six CASS HDR scholarships to present a paper at the Cambridge Arts and Humanities Research Council, DTP Conference, on ‘Time and Temporality’, from 14-16 September 2016.

The conference investigates the place - the moment - of 'time' in the arts and humanities, and brings together students from within Cambridge and from partner institutions of international standing such as the ANU, to exchange ideas and develop collaborative networks.

Paton's paper is titled The Mutability of Time and Space as a Means of Healing History in an Australian Aboriginal Community

Below is an image from Paton's research depicting Nuggett Collins Japarta, manufacturing a boomerang for exchange - the system of exchange, called winnun, is a means of changing space, time and history.
