In 2011 the annual National Native Title Conference will be co-convened by the Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) and Queensland South Native Title Services (QSNTS) on the traditional lands of the Yagera and Turrbal Peoples of the Brisbane River.
This year the theme of the conference is “Our Country, Our Future”. It will be held at the Brisbane Exhibition and Convention Centre in Brisbane from 1-3 June 2011. The conference aims to address the following themes:
- Decisions, Actions, Results
- Enduring cultures, resilient societies
- Country, Heritage and Development
- Tenure, Title and Possession
Conference convenors are seeking presentations that engage with native title as an active agenda for justice for people and country – both before and after the outcome of a native title determination, and within the broader compass of traditional ownership. Please submit your proposal with an abstract and biography by Monday 14 March 2011. You may also make an expression of interest, for discussion with the conveners.
