UniSA Media Library https://media.unisa.edu.au/ UniSA Media Library en-us InConversation with Professor Charles Lemert Since 9/11 it has been commonplace to think of the human world as under siege. Today, more than a decade later, we understand more about the deeper structural elements of the troubles the human order of things is facing. Chief among them are the unconscious forces of a history of collective guilt, the demonic side of technological speed that inserts itself even in the souls of individuals, and the undeniable extent to which nature, long considered our playground, has turned on us, to extract its revenge. https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48327 Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:49:28 GMT https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48327 International Women's Day event - Ending Violence Against Women Witch-hunting in 2013. Earlier this month, bystanders, including children, watched a woman be tortured and burnt alive for sorcery, in Papua New Guinea. This is not just an issue for women, it is increasingly recognised for what it is: a threat against democracy and peace https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48326 Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:45:28 GMT https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48326 Try one day without the arts Robyn Archer is one of those people for whom culture definitely includes footy as well as Fauré and film. Her role as Creative Director of the Centenary of Canberra has also renewed her respect for the creativity in science, planning, big ideas and all those other aspects of any society, but she still sees the arts as both central and at the same time fatally neglected in so many contexts in so many places. Her argument is that if it is impossible to go even one day without encountering the products of art, then artists are as essential as plumbers, doctors and teachers. Hear the 2012 recipient of the Premier's Lifetime Achievement Award make her case for the inclusion of the arts in every aspect of planning for a lively twenty-first century city. https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48325 Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:41:08 GMT https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48325 Has South Australia given up on heritage? Forty-one years ago, South Australia took a bold and unprecedented step forward in the conservation of architectural heritage with the purchase of the former Bank of South Australia, which had been slated for demolition. Now known as Edmund Wright House, it is an acknowledged jewel of Victorian style. In subsequent years, South Australia enacted significant legislation to identify significant places and protect them. Resources were devoted by governments and councils into heritage surveys and listings. A state government Heritage Branch set about an ambitious program of registration and conservation and Councils developed local heritage plans. https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48323 Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:30:37 GMT https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48323 Not in my backyard: Community responses to higher density living - is it all in the mind?

The exhibition built on ideas put forward by philosopher Emmanuel Levinas, who was exploring the relationship between the inside and outside world - and what keeps us awake. Inspired by this exploration, Professor Ranjana Khanna sees in insomnia an analogy for asylum seeking - a space where there is no security, rest, or chance for recuperation but rather, constant agitation and inner turmoil. https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48321 Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:21:25 GMT https://media.unisa.edu.au/Play/48321 Your health, your choice Advance Care Directives (ACDs) enable us to record in advance our values and our wishes about where and how we want to live and to be cared for, what levels of functional ability would be intolerable to us and what health care or medical treatment we do or do not want.
