Landscapes of Meaning
South Asia—Australia connections: environment and people
It's not just cricket or Bollywood! The connections between South Asia and Australia are expanding through trade, music, film, dance, tourism and migration.
Australia and South Asia face the same urgent questions of:
How to meet the crises in environmental conditions while fulfilling the social justice agenda for Indigenous communities
When highly mobile populations from both regions have had to remake their homes elsewhere, how do they negotiate their affective social and political loyalties?
Despite these common questions, South Asia and Australia have seldom been engaged in either comparison or challenge. This workshop brings together researchers, environmental activists and grass-roots community campaigners from South Asia and Australia to challenge assumptions and find common ground, focusing on the themes of environmental justice and transnational migrancy.For more details, or to register for this event, please click here.
