CAEPR Seminar - Therapy Culture and the Intentional Aboriginal [Anangu] Subject - Sarah Holcombe

Where - Humanities Conference Room, First Floor, A.D. Hope Bldg #14 (opposite Chifley Library), The Australian National University, Canberra.

When - Wednesday, 4 May 2016 - 12.30 - 2.00pm





This seminar is drawn from a chapter in a work-in-progress book Human Rights in Aboriginal central Australia: Towards the Practice of Theory.   

The particularly rich locations where there are active attempts by the State and their agents at inscribing an agentic human-rights holder subject, as a reformed Aboriginal self; is through policy interventions labelled as 'behavioural change programs' for the perpetrators and the victims of spousal violence. There are several of these operating in Alice Springs, including within the jail, but the focus of this seminar will be on the Cross Border Indigenous Family Violence Program
