2. [NEW ITEM] REGISTRATION OPEN! Tasmanian Heritage Symposia: Exploring Cultural Landscapes & Science Heritage, 9-12 November 2018

Australia ICOMOS Heritage Symposia
Exploring Cultural Landscapes And Science Heritage
Initial Information & Call For Papers
Hobart, Tasmania, November 2018

Australia ICOMOS is holding two back-to-back Symposia in Hobart over 10-12 November 2018. The Cultural Landscape Diversity & the Implications for Management Symposium (10-11 November) and the Under the Microscope – Exploring Science Heritage Symposium (11-12 November) are timely fora to review and discuss the identification and management of these two aspects of cultural heritage – one an established, but rapidly developing area, and the other relatively invisible and little known.

  • Cultural Landscape Diversity & the Implications for Management Symposium – this symposium is aimed at exploring the diversity of cultural landscapes and what this diversity means for the identification, categorisation, assessment and management of cultural landscapes. It is intended as an opportunity to review where Australia is at in relation to the conservation of cultural landscapes, and to explore how best practice in this area can be maintained into the future.
  • Under the Microscope – Exploring Science Heritage Symposium – this symposium will shine light on the physical heritage of Australia’s long history of science and innovation and the identification and conservation of this ‘science heritage’. It is designed to be a multidisciplinary dialogue that explores the heritage of Australian science, including what science heritage is, what significant science heritage we have in Australia, and whether there are particular management needs for the conservation of this heritage.

The symposia are open to all people with an interest in cultural landscapes and/or science heritage. Each symposium will be a combination of presented papers with opportunities for discussion of the issues raised and the implications and needs for heritage conservation. A joint symposia field excursion on Sunday 11 November will present symposia participants with the opportunity to visit some outstanding and diverse Tasmanian cultural landscapes and science heritage sites within southeastern Tasmania.

More information on the two symposia (including the full call for papers) can be found at the Australia ICOMOS website.

Additional events

The Australia ICOMOS 2018 AGM will be held on Friday 9 November in the late afternoon; and the NSC-CLCR annual meeting will be held on Saturday 10 November immediately following the Cultural Landscapes Symposium. Members are encouraged to also attend these events.

The symposia registration fees are:

  • Cultural Landscapes Symposium – $85 per person
  • Science Heritage Symposium – $85 per person
  • Joint Symposia Excursion**^^ – $95 per person

**Please Note – registration for the Symposia Excursion is only open to individuals who also register for either/both of the symposiums.

^^Exception – All symposium registrants are able to nominate one accompanying person, who doesn’t need to register for either of the Symposia, for the Joint Field Excursion. Payment arrangements for this will be finalised shortly. If this applies to you, please send a brief explanatory email to Anne McConnell and we will contact you in due course.

Registrations are now open – click here to register

5. [NEW ITEM] Deakin University Cultural Heritage Seminar, Melbourne, Thursday 30 August

Deakin University’s next Cultural Heritage Seminar will be a presentation by Sarah Hayes (Deakin University), on “Historical Archaeological Collections as Cultural Heritage”.

Abstract

Historical archaeology in Australia is primarily driven by cultural heritage management in response to heritage legislation. The result: vast collections of broken ceramics, bottle glass and other daily detritus from long ago carefully conserved and housed in corflute boxes in repositories, museums and archaeologists’ sheds. They are preserved for posterity and these ever growing collections will be housed in perpetuity. This seminar will explore the limitations and potentials of such collections as a heritage resource (in contrast to a research resource). Drawing on the speaker’s current research into quality of life in the Gold Rush era, it will argue for the role of storytelling through site tours, museum displays and beyond in enhancing the heritage value of the collections. And there will be stories. Stories of everyday Victorians and the material trajectories of their lives in a time of great upheaval.

Biography

Sarah Hayes is an urban archaeologist and material culture researcher working primarily within the Heritage and Indigeneity stream of the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation, Deakin University. Her current research is on how the Gold Rush shaped quality of life in Melbourne, Bendigo, San Francisco, Sacramento and Dunedin and the factors that determine individual participation in employment and society. Sarah is co-editor of the Australasian Historical Archaeology journal, member of the Heritage Council’s Archaeology and Underwater Cultural Heritage Committee and honorary associate with both Museum Victoria and La Trobe University

11. [NEW ITEM] The Trust Talks – Beauty or the Beast? Communicating the Value of Twentieth Century Heritage, Brisbane, 18 October 2018

THE TRUST TALKS – Beauty or the Beast? Communicating the Value of Twentieth Century Heritage

THE TOPIC

Join us for an evening of inspiring talks by international experts on modernist heritage as we examine the value of this much-maligned aspect of our heritage.

Queensland’s twentieth century heritage is rapidly disappearing – places from the modernist era struggle to even gain statutory listing. A lack of appreciation and understanding is hindering our efforts to gain recognition for these places.

In this environment, how should we communicate the value of a type of building that many people find ugly or unattractive – more importantly – if we can’t communicate this value, how can we expect people to appreciate it or protect it?

THE NIGHT

Thursday 18 October 2018
5pm drinks & canapes
6pm start
7.30pm finish
Ticket price includes drinks and canapes on arrival and a gift bag

14. [NEW ITEM] Flying Doctor lands at the National Museum of Australia – National Museum of Australia media release

Australia ICOMOS is committed to the dissemination of relevant cultural heritage information. In line with this commitment we are circulating the following media release from the National Museum of Australia, dated 15 August 2015.

Royal Flying Doctor Service celebrates its 90th year

An historic 1960s medical chest and an innovative early pedal generator and radio transceiver used on remote outback homesteads, feature in a new exhibit at the National Museum of Australia (NMA) in Canberra, celebrating the Royal Flying Doctor Service’s (RFDS) 90th year.

Commemorating the ingenuity and commitment of the 1928 founders of the RFDS, the exhibit explores the way transport and communication networks have connected Australians across our vast continent.

The RFDS CEO Dr Martin Laverty said the development of the Flying Doctor 90 years ago reflected a demand for the service, which is still needed today to bring vital primary health and emergency care to rural and remote Australia. ‘Through a partnership with the National Museum of Australia we are excited to create an exhibit that tells the historical and contemporary significance of the Service and the role it plays in bringing health services to country Australians,’ said Dr Laverty.

NMA curator Laina Hall said the exhibit is the culmination of a two-year collaboration between the NMA and RFDS to establish a collection of material for the National Historical Collection.

‘The innovative use of cutting-edge technology, such as aviation and radio, by the Royal Flying Doctor Service revolutionised the way people in remote Australia not only accessed medical care, but communicated with each other,’ said Dr Hall.

The exhibit in the NMA’s Landmarks gallery includes a medical chest and its contents developed by Dr Keith Sweetman, a flying doctor based in Western Australia, to enable people in remote locations to administer first aid treatment, under the ‘radio’ guidance of a Flying Doctor.

The standardised medical chests are still in use today, with more than 3000 distributed across remote Australia.

The exhibit also showcases a 1930s pedal generator developed by Alfred Traeger, which enabled a radio transceiver to be powered when no other electricity was available.

A radio transceiver used to receive and transmit messages between homesteads and RFDS bases; a propeller blade from an RFDS plane; and 1980s RFDS board game, also feature in the exhibit.

The exhibit includes current-day interviews with a former Flying Doctor patient who almost lost her life in a horrific farming accident; an RFDS clinician who has spent decades servicing families and communities in remote South Australia; and a fifth generation country boy who is now an RFDS pilot – based in Charleville Queensland.

The Federal Rural Health Minister, Senator the Honourable Bridget McKenzie will join RFDS Federation Board Chair, Amanda Vanstone, and NMA director, Dr Mathew Trinca, to open the new exhibit at a private event on the evening of Wednesday 15 August.

Starting from a single leased Qantas plane in 1928, the RFDS is today Australia’s third largest airline with a fleet of 69 planes, 115 road service vehicles and 1400 professionals delivering emergency medical and primary health services across the country.

Every day the Flying Doctor aeromedically evacuates 101 people to a tertiary hospital, transports 193 patients by road for specialist care, delivers 48 GP and Nurse clinics in rural and remote communities, delivers 30 dental consultations with fly-in fly-out or drive-in drive-out services and cares for 243 patients with telehealth consultations.

Nicholas Jose presents: UQP Makes History – a personal reflection, 31 August, Brisbane

In this 70th anniversary year of the University of Queensland Press (UQP), please join author Nicholas Jose as he presents the annual Fryer Lecture in Australian Literature, entitled “UQP makes history: a personal reflection”.

Great publishers make history through the books they produce. The list of work published by UQP allows us to chart the literary history of the past 70 years, revealing the changing contours of that history in response to developments in Australian culture and society.

When considering his formation as a reader, writer, and thinker, Nicholas Jose recalls UQP titles that marked the way, from Ian Fairweather’s The Drunken Buddha (1965) to Alexis Wright’s Plains of Promise (1997), and the “Paperback Poets” of the 1970s to Julie Koh’s Portable Curiosities (2016).

The UQP archive, held in the Fryer Library, enhances that history, including through what it documents of Jose’s first book, The Possession of Amber. His most recent story, ‘Beetroot’, appears in UQP’s 70th anniversary anthology Reading the Landscape: a celebration of Australian Writing (2018).

Fuelling the Fire: Tour of Joadaja, 25 October, NSW

Fuelling the Fire: Tour of Joadaja
Presented by the Australian Garden History Society, Southern Highlands Branch
Thursday 25 October 2018

Australian Garden History Society Southern Highlands Branch are pleased to present a symposium to be held in an evocative state-heritage area, Joadja Creek valley, 30kms west of Mittagong, the location of an abandoned nineteenth-century kerosene and shale oil mining town. The site is recognised for its heritage significance:

‘The isolation and beauty of Joadja valley, the comprehensiveness of its physical testimony to a great Australian industry, a vigorous Scottish community and a vanished technology make Joadja an extremely important element in the heritage not just of Wingecarribee Shire but of Australia and the world.’ – State Heritage Register Statement of Significance.

After a Welcome to Country by Gundungurra Elder, Trish Levett, a barbeque lunch will be provided on arrival in the valley. Owner Valero Jiminez and historian, Leonie Knapman, will take you on a tour of the valley including the ruins, the retorts, ‘Carrington Row’ and former orchards. Discussion will continue in the distillery café, led by Professor Emeritus Helen Armstrong AM. The particular focus will be on time and conflicting narratives of ‘gardening’ in the broader landscape. Dr Charles Massey OAM, author of ‘Call of the Reed Warbler’, will bring his deep knowledge of regenerative attitudes to land.

Friday 27 September 2018 | A one-day symposium presented by the Emerging Heritage Professionals (Vic)

The word ‘heritage’ often conjures up images of static and unchanging buildings, gardens and cultural landscapes. Yet this belies the fact that the field of heritage is very much in flux, a site of conflict and contestation across communities, generations and socio-economic groups, encompassing both tangible and intangible significance and values.

Join the Emerging Heritage Professionals (Vic) for Unsettling Heritage, a symposium exploring the varied and shifting landscape of heritage in the 21st century.

We are currently seeking papers which critically respond to one or more of the following:

  • Difficult and uncomfortable stories and historic narratives
  • Whose Heritage? Identity, gentrification and multiculturalism
  • Social Justice – Reconciliation, self-determination and decolonising places and approaches
  • Challenges in responding to climate change and sustainable practice
  • Subverting heritage ‘silos’ and embracing interdisciplinary theory, practice and approach
  • Digital technologies, social media, virtual reality and new opportunities to understand and communicate the past

We welcome submissions from postgraduate candidates in both coursework and research programs, and early career professionals and practitioners working in or alongside the heritage field. Please submit a 100 word abstract (6-minute presentation) or a 250 word abstract (15-minute presentation) to the Unsettling Heritage organising committee by email by Thursday 30 August 2018. Participants will be notified of their acceptance by Thursday 6 September.

Want to know more? Any questions? Visit the symposium website or send an email to the Unsettling Heritage organising committee by email.

Registration will open next week (Thursday 26 July).

Draft State Planning Policies released for consultation (SA) – deadline 7 September 2018

The draft State Planning Policies, which represent the highest level of policy in our new planning system, have now been released for consultation. The policies will be out for consultation for eight weeks and all interested parties are invited to submit their comments via the SA Planning Portal or YourSAy website by Friday 7 September 2018.

A Summary of the Draft State Planning Policies for South Australia (PDF) is also available.

The draft State Planning Policies set out for the first time a state-wide vision for land use planning in South Australia that aims to improve the liveability, sustainability and prosperity of our state.

Sixteen policies are laid out that address the economic, environmental and social planning priorities for South Australia.

These policies consider changes to how and where South Australians live and work, as well as important issues such as housing supply and diversity; design quality; the adaptive re-use of buildings; climate change; and strategic transport infrastructure.

By bringing South Australia’s planning interests together in a single, over-arching vision, the State Planning Policies will generate greater clarity and efficiency in our planning system and give us the direction we need to respond to modern opportunities and challenges.

Your input will ensure that the State Planning Policies reflect the aspirations of the planning and development community as well as everyday South Australians.

In keeping with the Community Engagement Charter, a detailed communications and engagement plan has been written to support the release of these policies and a number of engagement activities are in progress. You can stay abreast of these through the Planning Ahead newsletter and the list of consultation events on the SA Planning Portal.

Closing Date: 30 September 2018

1. Rhys Jones Medal for Outstanding Contribution to Australian Archaeology

The Rhys Jones Medal is the highest award offered by the Australian Archaeological Association Inc. It was established in honour of Rhys Jones (1941-2001) to mark his enormous contribution to the development and promotion of archaeology in Australia. The Medal is presented annually to an individual who has made an outstanding and sustained contribution to the field.

The Award was established in honour of John Mulvaney and his contribution and commitment to Australian archaeology over a lifetime of professional service. It acknowledges the significant contribution of individual or co-authored publications to the archaeology of the continent of Australia, the Pacific, Papua-New Guinea and South-East Asia, either as general knowledge or as specialist publications. Nominations are considered annually for books that cover both academic pursuits and public interest, reflecting the philosophy of John Mulvaney’s life work.

3. The Bruce Veitch Award for Excellence in Indigenous Engagement

This Award celebrates the important contribution that Bruce Veitch (1957-2005) made to the practice and ethics of archaeology in Australia. In particular, the award honours Bruce’s close collaboration with traditional owners on whose country he worked. It is awarded annually to any individual or group who has had long-standing and sustained engagement with Indigenous communities during archaeological or cultural heritage projects which have produced significant outcomes for Indigenous interests. Established in 2005, previous winners include Annie Ross (2008), Ian McNiven (2012) and Mel Marshall (2017). A full list of past recipients can be found on the AAA website.

Nominees will have actively engaged with Indigenous communities to produce successful outcomes.

Nominators are strongly encouraged to include supporting statements from relevant Indigenous individuals or community organisations.
