(see separate attachment for map and directions)

Post Pressed, e-content Management, and noted Indigenous scholar and researcher, Dr. Jackie Huggins, will be launching The More Things Change: The origins and impacts of Australian Indigenous exclusion by Dr. Rae Norris.

This is a superb work of scholarship, in plain language, addressing the institutional and ideologicalfactors which have excluded Indigenous Australians in the past and which continue to inhibit Indigenous progress in the present. The thesis from which it was developed won the inaugural Griffith University Chancellor’s Medal for Ph.D. research in 2007 and Rae is an Adjunct Research Fellow with the Centre for Governance and Public Policy at the Griffith University.

Following Rae’s launch, will be the public launching of the ground-breaking Post Pressed and e-contentManagement series, Contesting Colonialism: Indigenous Knowledge and Indigenous Research by notedacademic, writer and scholar Prof. Karen Martin. Karen is the only Indigenous person awarded a University medal for her PhD by research; it also won two scholarly awards. That work is published as part of this series. Coordinated by an editorial panel of five leading Indigenous scholars and academics, this series currently includes 13 titles — see attached brochure — and has several more waiting for publication.

Tuesday, Nov. 8, 6.00 for 6.30 – 9.00 in the Talking Circle at the State Library, Qld. Refreshments, of course. Do come, and do spread the word — we really want to make an impact for these significant publications on one of the most important issues facing this nation.
