With a focus on ten notable Australians, including Nobel Laureates Professor Barry Marshall and Professor Brian Schmidt, former Chief Scientist, Professor Ian Chubb, and Parliamentarian, the Honourable Linda Burney, The Power of Conferences explores the deep and lasting impact of conferences on the development and success of Australian luminaries.Each chapter features a reflection from a leader in Australian academia, politics, or community service, on the significant effects conferences have had on their personal and professional achievements.From chance encounters that result in the cultivation of new networks and collaborations to innovation and research breakthroughs, these leaders describe the conferences that have enabled them and others to go on to create real and lasting social change.

Abstract

This research monograph documents and analyses the many ways in which communities experiencing racism after September 11, 2001 have responded to increased prejudice, harassment and discrimination. While much research analyses the 'problem' of racism, this book highlights the responses developed by targeted communities, including strategies of Interfaith, cross-cultural education, media responses and community cultural development work. A follow-up to the 2006 work Targeted, the research underlying this book is based on extensive community consultations and interviews with Arab, Muslim and Sikh communities in Sydney. It maps the field and identifies common challenges with the aim of contributing to wider processes of innovation in community anti-racism work.
