Abstract

Mickey Dewar made a profound contribution to the history of the Northern Territory, which she performed across many genres. She produced high‑quality, memorable and multi-sensory histories, including the Cyclone Tracy exhibition at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and the reinterpretation of Fannie Bay Gaol. Informed by a great love of books, her passion for history was infectious. As well as offering three original chapters that appraise her work, this edited volume republishes her first book, In Search of the Never-Never. In Dewar’s comprehensive and incisive appraisal of the literature of the Northern Territory, she provides brilliant, often amusing insights into the ever-changing representations of a region that has featured so large in the Australian popular imagination.&#xD;

Abstract

This book represents the first consolidated history of vocational education and training in the Northern Territory. Not only does the story present a chronological account of events, people and institutions, it also offers an explanation of how the system actually works and this has application well beyond the Territory. The mix of historical accounting and operational analysis comes from a unique perspective. It is proposed that the best way to understand the behaviour of the government ministers who have responsibility for vocational training is to compare their decisions and actions with those of wealthy philanthropists.

Abstract

Western Arnhem Land, in the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory, has a rich archaeological landscape, ethnographic record and body of rock art that displays an astonishing array of imagery on shelter walls and ceilings. While the archaeology goes back to the earliest period of Aboriginal occupation of the continent, the rock art represents some of the richest, most diverse and visually most impressive regional assemblages anywhere in the world. To better understand this multi-dimensional cultural record, The Archaeology of Rock Art in Western Arnhem Land, Australia focuses on the nature and antiquity of the region’s rock art as revealed by archaeological surveys and excavations, and the application of novel analytical methods. This volume also presents new findings by which to rethink how Aboriginal peoples have socially engaged in and with places across western Arnhem Land, from the north to the south, from the plains to the spectacular rocky landscapes of the plateau. The dynamic nature of Arnhem Land rock art is explored and articulated in innovative ways that shed new light on the region’s deep time Aboriginal history.

Abstract

This volume represents the third publication in the series devoted to the theme "Figures in space, politics and society", promoted by a specific interdisciplinary study group, and is the result of the study day held in Florence in December 2003. The objective here is to set up comparisons with the suggestions thrown up by historical and literary evidence pertinent to the numerous modes of imagining space with reference to the political and social spheres. A series of extracts from sources collateral to the classical political panorama highlights the fertility of the line of research and the efficacy of the interdisciplinary approach adopted.

Abstract

[English]:According to the European Landscape Convention, signed in Florence on 20 October 2000, the landscape is the outcome of the relationship between local communities and their territories, as a result of the social culture that collective behaviors substantiate to build identities. Aware that everyone has an active role in shaping landscapes, the volume addresses some key aspects of the theme with a specialized but transversal approach. It is paired by the reflections of schoolteachers, who have implemented initiatives with students of Campania schools aimed at bringing them closer to their territories and to make them aware of the active role they have in its transformation. The origin of this symbiosis is the Training Project “Landscape from everyone – Landscape for everyone. Training and education for the awareness of new generations” developed and implemented by the local group of the University of Naples Federico II of the UNISCAPE (European Network of Universities for the Implementation of the European Landscape Convention) Association and the Regional School Office of Campania.[Italiano]: Secondo la Convenzione Europea del Paesaggio, firmata a Firenze il 20 Ottobre del 2000, il paesaggio è l’esito della relazione tra le comunità locali ed i loro territori, frutto della cultura sociale che i comportamenti collettivi sostanziano per costruire identità. Consapevole che ogni individuo ha, quindi, un ruolo attivo e inderogabile nel plasmare i paesaggi, il volume affronta i principali nuclei fondanti della tematica con un approccio trasversale, frutto della convergenza di saperi specialistici. A ciò si affiancano le riflessioni di docenti scolastici, che hanno implementato con i ragazzi delle scuole della Campania iniziative volte ad avvicinarli ed a renderli consapevoli del ruolo attivo che essi hanno nella trasformazione dei loro territori. L’origine di questa simbiosi è il Progetto Formativo “Paesaggio da tutti – Paesaggio per tutti. Formazione ed educazione per la consapevolezza delle nuove generazioni” sviluppato e implementato dal gruppo locale dell’Università di Napoli Federico II dell’Associazione UNISCAPE (European Network of Universities for the Implementation of the European Landscape Convention) di concerto con l’Ufficio Scolastico Regionale della Campania.
