Dear CSAA-ers,

In conjunction with the Space, Race, Bodies—Geocorpographies of the City, Nation and Empire conference, we are offering a Masterclass on December 11 with Associate Professor Jacinta Ruru entitled, ‘An Indigenous consideration of space and property’. A description of the Masterclass is below.

This masterclass will draw on multiple disciplines such as law, geography, and politics to consider how colonial spaces are being recalibrated as Indigenous places in modern societies that are committed to reconciliation. The recasting of lands and waters including public places such as national parks will be considered in this session against the backdrop of themes relating to national identity, peoples’ connections to land, the resilience of Indigenous laws, and the power of society to reimagine its foundations. Readings for this session will include an opportunity to look at recent excerpts from the top courts in Canada, Australia and New Zealand and writing by leading authors such as Professor Nicholas Blomley”.

Jacinta Ruru is an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Otago and Centre Associate at the University of New South Wales Indigenous Law Centre. Her recent work includes co-authoring Discovering Indigenous Lands: The doctrine of discovery in the English colonies (2010), and “Undefined and unresolved: Exploring indigenous rights in Aotearoa New Zealand's freshwater legal regime” (2009). She is co-editor of a forthcoming Māori Law Treatise (2015).

"Under Thatcher, who ruled us with an iron rod, great art was made. Amazing designers and musicians. Acid house was born. Very colourful and progressive.
Now, no one’s got anything to say. Write a song? No thanks, I’ll say it on Twitter. It’s a sad state when more people retweet than buy records" - Noel Gallagher
