From the Sydney Node

Juanita Feros Ruys By Juanita Feros Ruys (The University of Sydney)

As wide-ranging as our ARC Centre of Excellence is, with nodes across Australia, Associate Investigators in additional universities and Partner Investigators around the world, we are also only a cog in a much larger wheel: the CHE is a member of the international Consortium of Humanities Centres and Institutes (CHCI), which currently includes over 200 members. In August, the annual meeting of the Consortium took place in Cape Town, South Africa. Giovanni Tarantino, CHE’s Research Development Officer, and I attended as representatives of CHE.

The location of the conference in what was frequently referred to during the course of events as ‘the Global South’ constituted a move by the Consortium to recognise the important humanities research work being done beyond the traditional alignment of US-Europe-UK universities. Accordingly, many speakers and sessions addressed the nature of humanities research in Africa generally, and South Africa in particular, and how such research necessarily intersects with political considerations. In addition, the conference theme – ‘Humanities Improvised’ – aimed to acknowledge the innovative and creative ways that humanities research can be undertaken, speak to wider audiences beyond academia and address urgent cultural issues.

The keynote addresses were stellar, including legends of cultural studies Homi K. Bhabha and Gayatri Spivak. British installation artist Isaac Julien and South African artist William Kentridge provided insights into the ideas driving their creative processes. Sessions and speakers repeatedly aimed to challenge the traditional notion of humanities research, and even of what constitutes an academic lecture, with musicians Reza Khota and Derek Gripper performing works that incorporated ideas and techniques from historic and global music practices. Jane Taylor’s innovative lecture on intersections of human and animal in humanities research, which has now been invited for an encore performance at the third international CHE conference in Perth next June, combined research into the history of psychology with a performance by two puppeteers wielding a larger-than-life puppet of a chimp.

The ability of puppetry to speak to social concerns, especially for child audiences, was considered at a special performance by the Ukwanda Puppet company, where Tony Bonani Miyambo also performed ‘Kafka’s Ape’, which again explored the intersections between humans and animals. Optional cultural tours on the last day of the conference addressed the way that the humanities can speak beyond their traditional boundaries, including by integration into the neighbourhoods that surround academic centres. In particular, the tour to the CHR Factory of the Arts (University of Western Cape) explored how this disused school with stunning views of Table Mountain is being developed into an art centre that will also be accessible to those in the neighbouring areas, where socioeconomic conditions are depressed. The tour concluded with an unexpected ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at the stunning new Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (MOCAA), strikingly carved out of old concrete grain silos on the waterfront at Cape Town (at that time nearing completion). It is the site of important new African art, and Julien Isaac’s new and highly complex installation.

The Cape Town meeting of the CHCI broadened the horizons of what is possible in humanities research and the ability of the academic humanities to address immediate contemporary concerns. Click

The
2018 annual CHCI conference, on the theme of ‘Humanities Informatics’, will be held at the University of Virginia, 13–17 June 2018.

Lullaby Choir Brings Joy and Song to Travellers

Lullaby Train in MelbourneBy Emma Miller (The University of Melbourne)

The Lullaby Choir, a joint initiative of CHE and VICSEG New Futures, took part in a unique Melbourne public art event during November 2017.

The 20-strong choir, which boasts singers from 10 nations, took multicultural lullabies to the streets as part of the City of Moreland’s MoreArt festival on 3 November and 24 November, much to the delight of passersby.

The choir sang for passengers on the platform at Jewell station in Brunswick before hopping aboard a train, where they entertained and engaged with travellers in the carriage. An audio installation of the choir’s tunes will also play for 24 hours a day at Jewell station until 6 December 2017.

CHE’s Deputy Director and Performance Program Leader Jane Davidson and Postdoctoral Research Fellow Samantha Dieckmann initiated the Lullaby Choir in 2016 as part of their ‘
Music, Emotion and Conciliation’ project, with the aim of promoting personal connection and community harmony through cross-cultural musical exchange.

They teamed up with VICSEG New Futures in Coburg. VICSEG New Futures is a not-for-profit, community organisation incorporating the Victorian Cooperative on Children's Services for Ethnic Groups (VICSEG Programs for Families, Children & Young People) and New Futures Training. Together VICSEG Programs for Families, Children & Young People and New Futures Training provide support and training to newly arrived and recently settled migrant communities, refugees and asylum seekers.

Emotions, Human Rights and Humanitarianism


Susan Broomhall opening the Emotions, Human Rights and Humanitarianism ConferenceBy Susan Broomhall ( The University of Western Australia)

The 48th annual Symposium of the Australian Academy of the Humanities (AAH) was held in Western Australia in November 2017, and focused on the very timely theme of Humanitarianism and Human Rights. As both ideas and practices, human rights and humanitarianism have strong emotional dimensions and one of the key questions established by the convenors – Jane Lydon (UWA), Alan Dench (Curtin University), Baden Offord (Curtin University) and myself – was ‘How is contemporary Australia shaped by the long intellectual and emotional histories regarding human rights and humanitarianism?’

Emotions form an integral part of this discussion, for not only have rights discourses over time been conceptually linked to notions such as pity, love, care and charity, but they have been demanded and fought for through powerful affective language and emotionally provocative action. While acknowledging that tradition, we also wanted to question whether humanitarian notions or behaviours framed as empathy or compassion can really encompass ‘shared values’, and to consider whose values are promoted, and to what ends, under such terms.

CHE sponsored the symposium’s opening public event, which brought together an interdisciplinary humanities panel of keynote speakers and respondents from the Centre to reflect on the long history of emotions, human rights and humanitarianism. CHE Advisory Board member David Konstan (New York University) outlined the absence of human rights, as we understand them today, in the classical world, but traced their origins in discussions of the appropriate treatment of prisoners of war, expectations about the rights of (male) citizens and the rise of Christianity as a new conceptual community that entitled some people to recognition and rights. Chief Investigator Paul Gibbard (UWA) responded with an overview of Enlightenment shifts in these concepts and a particular analysis of Voltaire’s intervention in the Calas affair of 1762.

The second keynote speaker, CHE Advisory Board member Anna Haebich (Curtin University), spoke about the long history of Nyungar performance cultures of activism, from corroborees at the time of colonisation to current theatre and Noongaroke nights. CHE Chief Investigator Jacqueline Van Gent (UWA) responded, highlighting the importance of such performances as forms of power and agency, as well as affective expressions of grief, joy and community belonging and renewal. CHE Director Andrew Lynch (UWA) offered closing remarks that emphasised a number of key points and questions emerging from all of the presentations, specifically changing definitions of the ‘human’ entailed in human rights, and who has the power and right to express themselves and their emotional worlds.

Feeling the Past: Indigenous Emotions and History

Jakelin Troy and Jacqueline Van GentBy Shino Konishi (The University of Western Australia)

Over two days in early November, Indigenous Australian scholars and cultural producers from across Australia met at The University of Western Australia, located near the banks of the Derbarl Yerrigan, to explore how we can better understand our past through emotion.

For many Indigenous people the past has an immediacy that is still felt today, as many live with the legacies of past policies of exclusion, segregation, protection and assimilation which were either experienced first hand, or by parents and grandparents. The effects of such policies are also manifested in the enduring ‘gap’ between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australian peoples’ socio-economic, health and educational outcomes, as well as their expectations about future opportunities. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander storytellers, writers, artists and filmmakers have long expressed the emotional immediacy of our histories through their works.

The ‘
Feeling the Past: Indigenous Emotions and History’ symposium provided an opportunity for Indigenous scholars to explore how we can use emotions to grapple with our histories, and also to reflect on, and further develop, the role emotions play in maintaining and expressing the immanence of our past in the present.

Following a moving Welcome to Country by Noongar custodian Richard Walley, Tony Birch (Victoria University) launched the symposium by taking us on his journey from Victoria to Canada and back. He revealed the way in which the different places he visited were haunted by past and present tragedies of settler-colonialism – of frontier massacres, cultural erasure of Indigenous sites, environmental disasters caused by fire and climate change, and the premature deaths of young Aboriginal people in Australia and Canada. His presentation revealed the ways in which emotions can attune us to dig deeper into local histories and uncover Indigenous pasts and presence in places where there are held to be none.

Presentations by Leah Lui-Chivizhe (The University of Sydney), Elfie Shiosaki (Curtin University), Jakelin Troy (The University of Sydney), Clint Bracknell (The University of Sydney) and myself explored different ways in which we can recover insights into how Indigenous people expressed emotions in the past – be it fury towards European mariners for stealing sacred objects, the intimate emotions expressed through Aboriginal words and songs, or how focusing on emotions can give new insights into ethnographic descriptions of Indigenous cultural practices. Michael Aird (The University of Queensland) and Michael Jalaru Torres (Jalaru Photography) both explored photography, revealing how seemingly objectifying historical photographs can be recontextualised and remade as emotional touchstones between Aboriginal people and their ancestors, or how, in the hands of an artist, they might offer visual clues that trigger memories and nostalgia for forgotten stories and histories.

Barry Judd (Charles Darwin University) highlighted the way in which Indigenous academics are often driven to investigate our histories in order to know more about our own identities and selves, and how our emotional responses can be a tool leading us to new research questions that more ‘objective’ approaches would overlook. Frances Peters-Little (Australian National University) and Natalie Harkin (Flinders University) similarly revealed how film, poetry and installation art can more ‘truthfully’ reflect Indigenous experiences of segregation and protection than western records and archives. Their presentations reflected on how a more compassionate telling of our history can exorcise places haunted by historic pain and loss, and work towards healing and reconciling the past.

This symposium revealed the rich insights into Indigenous histories and epistemologies that a particular focus on emotions and emotional practices can offer. We will continue this important discussion with an edited collection, and hopefully future colloquia.

Music and World-Building Project Goes from Strength to Strength

Kurri Kurri Mandolin Orchestra, 1920s. Open source.By Emma Miller (The University of Melbourne)

CHE Deputy Director Jane Davidson (The University of Melbourne) and Associate Investigator Helen English (The University of Newcastle) have had an enthusiastic response upon presenting the initial findings of their research project ‘Music and World-Building: From Past to Present’.

The co-researchers have been investigating contemporary amateur music groups in Newcastle, New South Wales – informed by Helen’s study of nineteenth-century settler music communities – to gain insight into how music can be used to build and replenish community capacity.

At a lively symposium held at the Newcastle Conservatorium on 2 November 2017, Jane and Helen, together with Sarah Monk (University of Newcastle), hosted an evening of music, panel discussion and open conversation that was warmly embraced by the local community. The evening included performances by local groups The Undeniably Noisy Project (Cessnock Community Choir), LakeMacUkestra, Novatones Harmony Chorus, Blackalls Swing Band, Newkestra and Toronto Brass Band.

Drawing on its research into how music was used as a resource for world-building in the Newcastle and Maitland regions from 1840 to 1880, the project investigated six diverse music communities operating in the same regions today. The research focused on uncovering the perceived benefits of membership in a music group and its impact on participants’ lives, well-being, sense of self and belonging, as well as tracking changes over time.

Emergent findings presented at the symposium include improved connections, teamwork and camaraderie; lifelong learning benefits for many of the adult musical novices; and the importance of leadership in community music settings.

Emotions Research Catalyst for Successful Partnership

2017 CHASS PrizeBy Erika von Kaschke (The University of Western Australia)

Emotions research was the catalyst for a successful research-based project that led to CHE being awarded the prestigious 2017 CHASS Australia Prize for Distinctive Work in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.

CHE collaborated with the Kalbarri Development Association (KDA) to create the
Zest Festival, which ran from 2012–2016. The Centre’s work on the Zest Festival is distinctive for its engagement of a rural community in a cultural project with substantial artistic, intellectual and emotional scope.

Foundation CHE Chief Investigator Susan Broomhall (The University of Western Australia) ascribes the success of the Zest Festival to the fact that through emotions research researchers could help to build a bridge connecting residents from Kalbarri with the past. “It made history applicable today. It made it their history and their past”, she explained.

Inspired to commemorate the encounters of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) with the Australian coast, the Zest ‘journey’ mirrored the VOC trade route, annually focusing on specific geo-historical spheres of cultural influence from the Netherlands to Japan.

CHE, chosen from amongst 83 nominations for this award, developed research materials, artistic prompts and workshops to inspire community learning and reflection on the emotional heritage that connects international contact histories with contemporary Australian society.

CHE Director Andrew Lynch (The University of Western Australia) believes that this recognition of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions’ work in the Zest Festival shows the value of long-term funding in building research-based projects that can have major community impact.

CHE funded artistic incursions to Kalbarri District High School and supported projects amongst the extended community, culminating in broad participation in performances and exhibitions with multicultural, Indigenous and historical themes. Students were exposed to a broader range of cultural experiences than the town is usually able to offer, supporting them in their development of confidence and empathy. The Centre translated its research into annual
education packs with cross-disciplinary lessons for years K–10.

The Zest Festival created numerous
partnerships with national and international organisations and businesses, and foregrounded the historical and contemporary voices of the Indigenous Nhanda community in Kalbarri. It fostered national and international networks exposing Kalbarri to cultural exchanges, including the tangible exchange of artefacts and multimedia resources.

Canoe Project Sparks New Stories from Important Indigenous Collection

By Emma Miller (The University of Melbourne)



A unique collaboration between Melbourne’s Koorie Heritage Trust (KHT) and CHE is breathing new life into an important collection of Indigenous art and artefacts.

The Canoe Project – Stories from the Collection’ brings together fascinating objects from the KHT archive and new oral history films recorded with six Indigenous artists and activists, revealing new stories about items of great beauty and heritage.

Displayed in the four-metre-long Canoe Table at KHT’s Federation Square gallery, the objects were chosen to illustrate an important aspect of the personal, cultural and artistic lives of the participants, all of whom have artworks of their own included in the KHT’s collection.

Items featured in the exhibition include echidna quill and kangaroo tooth jewellery, stone tools, axe heads and exquisite flowers made from bird feathers. Visitors will be able to watch the films on their smart phones via unique QR codes as they discover new objects within the drawers of the Canoe Table.

KHT Assistant Curator Zenzi Clark said the project made strong links to community and country through the very personal stories shared by the participants.

“Each person chose items that have real meaning to them and, through the films, we learn not only about the objects but about the lives and country of artists in our community”, she said.

Penelope Lee, CHE Education and Outreach Officer, said both organisations shared an interest in how objects could play a key role in exploring history, emotion and memories.

“Objects help shape our identities, past and present, and they can embody memories, negotiate absences, and mediate relationships with others”, she said. “Objects provide a tangible link to the past, through our sensory exploration of them”.

The organisers would like to thank the artists and activists who participated in this project: Mick Harding, Kelly Koumalatsos, Marilyne Nicholls, Brendan Kennedy, Glenda Nicholls and Jefa Greenaway.

The exhibition opened on 14 October 2017.

Feature Publication


'Emotions in the History of Witchcraft' Book CoverBy Stephanie Tarbin (The University of Western Australia)

Kounine, Laura, and Michael Ostling, eds. Emotions in the History of Witchcraft, Palgrave Studies in the History of Emotions. London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016.

Early modern European witchcraft proves a productive focus for examining emotions, past and present, in this thought-provoking collection of essays. Starting from the proposition that witchcraft was an intensely emotional crime, Kounine and Ostling explain that the contributions have been ordered so as to untangle the different ‘emotional registers’ implicated in accusations of witchcraft. As a result, the collection is divided into four sections that examine the emotions imputed to early modern witches themselves (‘Representations’), the emotions of witches and accusers in records of prosecutions (‘On Trial’), how responses to witchcraft may be illuminated through modern theoretical perspectives (‘In the Mind’), and the present significance of studying past witchcraft (‘In History’). In a useful introduction, Kounine and Ostling consider the essays in terms of concepts developed within the history of emotions – emotives, emotionology and emotional regimes, emotional practices and emotional communities – to trace the network of thematic links between essays.

A sense of lively debate between essays in the collection makes for stimulating reading. In the first section, Charles Zika persuasively argues that the ‘extreme cruelty and violence’ of Jacques de Gheyn II’s images represent the disordered imaginations of witches. Zika’s exposition of how witches were believed to be unable to weep or feel the Christian emotions of compassion and empathy brings to the fore the other face of beliefs about witches as governed by unbridled passions. Kounine’s analysis of Remy’s Daemonalatria contests the idea that male witches were ‘unthinkable’ in intellectual thought and questions the dominance of gendered stereotypes, while Kent shows convincingly how English pamphlets drew on political ideas about tyranny to construct a stereotypical male witch.

Spirited discussion continues in the second section, which opens with Voltmer’s vigorous reminder that legal records are not windows on emotional experiences but present us with representations of emotions and construct emotional norms. Nonetheless, the following essays illuminate how analysis of emotional expressions can reveal past understandings and experiences of emotion. Thus, Kivelson exposes the dynamics of intimacy and distance in Russian magic while Ostling identifies expressions of love evidence from Polish trials. Millar offers a convincing reading of witches’ familiars in English witchcraft narratives as projections of intense emotions that enabled accused witches to act on and explain powerful desires.
Insights from a range of recent theoretical and disciplinary perspectives are juxtaposed in third and fourth sections of the collection. Bever, Geschiere and Ferber draw on the mind sciences, anthropology and discourse analysis, respectively, to illuminate the cognitive processes and mental frameworks shaping responses to witches and magic. Zwissler and Gaskill reflect on the present significance of studying early modern European witchcraft: the former in terms of the uses of the past to generate emotions, and the latter in terms of lessons for historians of emotion today.
