Right of Reply – Indigenous Rights in Data & Collections Symposium
18 October, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$33 – $99
This one-day symposium will focus on the importance of Indigenous rights in data and collections & the importance of the Right of Reply in relation to Indigenous self-determination and national truth-telling efforts.
The right of reply is becoming increasingly important for collecting institutions that hold Indigenous cultural materials and records.To engage with the right of reply is to recognise the issues and inherent biases associated with colonial collecting paradigms.
This symposium will bring together speakers to discuss these issues with a focus on emerging trends in data and technology use. Reflecting in particular on issues raised by the Australian Human Rights Commission Human Rights and Technology project which is exploring the impact and opportunities of new technologies to protect and promote our rights and freedoms.
The Symposium will be of interest to:
- People working with Indigenous knowledges and knowledge management
- Library and Information professionals
- People engaged with Indigenous research data
- Researchers who create or use Indigenous data and wish to manage it respectfully over time.
