I am pleased to invite you to come along to AIATSIS for our 2009 Seminar
Series, which will take place between February – June. The first seminar
is on Monday 2 February.

The theme of this year’s Series is ‘Giving an Account of Ourselves:
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Philosophy, Knowledge and View”
and the free seminars will be held on Mondays between 12.30 – 2pm in the
Mabo Room at AIATSIS.

This seminar series is being presented by Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander people for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The
seminars are free and open to all members of the public – Indigenous and
non-Indigenous.  The seminar series, in acknowledging the intellectual
heritage and strength of Indigenous Australian’s society, is also a
celebratory expression.  The speakers in this series come from all
States and Territories of Australia.
