Join us for an evening of global and cultural exploration and discovery as three experts discuss their unique perspectives on Indigenous people’s experiences.
6.30pm – Climate emergency from an Amazonian perspective. Earth’s climate is already changing. What does this mean for the world’s largest rainforest? This talk will be presented by Vinicius Dino, anthropologist and PhD candidate in Art History, University of East Anglia.
7.15pm – Reciprocal Visions: Native North Americans and the arts of cultural and colonial Eencounter – a new analysis. Anthropologist, Dr Max Carocci and art historian, Dr Stephanie Pratt, have developed a unique analysis on the roles played by historical visual media of and by Indigenous North American peoples past and present. New interdisciplinary research examines a rich visual and complex material, which shows how incomers to the North American continent, and Indigenous peoples, viewed one another. These representations are often challenged to reveal alternative stories and histories. This innovative work contributes to current debates on ethnic relations, popular preconceptions, prejudices, as well as issues of objectivity and truth.
8.00pm – The Jevan Berrangé Memorial Lecture: The day the world changed. The Oji-Cree lived and practiced Ahnishinahbayeshshikaywin, which outsiders call animism. The signing of Treaty 3 in 1874 completely disrupted their traditional lifeways. New farming practices, industries, railways, international treaties, and a dam ravaged the natural landscape for wood, minerals and water destroyed traditional hunting grounds, burial sites and land held sacred by the Lac Seul First Nation people, the Oji-Cree. But did their practice of animism survive? This talk will be presented by Dr Alicia Colson, an archaeologist and ethnohistorian working with computing scientists. Alicia collaborates with indigenous peoples, NGOs and governments in Canada, UK, US, and Antigua to understand our pasts. She is a member of The Explorers Club Class of 2022. Expeditions in Namibia and Iceland encouraged her to practice citizen science. As a Wiley Digital Archive Fellow her passion to explain to the widest audiences led her to produce an ESRI StoryMap of the Ilhas de Santa Catarina, Brazil, her childhood home. Co-founder of Exploration Revealed, the Scientific Exploration Society’s digital hybrid publication with Briony Turner showcases advances in knowledge and peer-to-peer support for those engaged with scientific exploration and adventure-led expedition.
