The World is not a Foreign Land

Drill Hall Gallery, Kingsley Street, ANU
This exhibition takes the notions of collaboration, dialogue and influence as its departure point. It involves Indigenous Australian artists working within localised histories of widely separated areas of 'remote' Australia. Their work stakes a claim for renewal and change by making a feature of artistic relationships previously unrepresented, bridging 'untraditional' media and eclectic traditions.

Monday, 27 October 2014 at 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
The Finkel Lecture Theatre, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, Building 131, Garran Road, ANU
It was first recognized in the 1930s that cancer cells use glucose differently to normal cells, but these differences are yet to be exploited for therapeutic purposes. This lecture will describe the different metabolic needs of cancer cells, and how redirecting cancer metabolism towards a more normal pattern can change cancer cell behaviour, including reducing growth, enhancing cancer cell death and reducing drug resistance.

Tuesday, 28 October 2014 at 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Australian Centre on China in the World Auditorium Building 188, Fellows Lane The Australian National University ANU map CD32 at grid reference D3
One of the major questions raised regarding many protracted and violent intergroup conflicts is why the adversaries do not succeed in reaching a settlement that seems obvious and easily attainable to outsiders. This question is of special importance because despite great losses, destruction, and personal suffering, many members of societies engulfed in these conflicts remain entrenched in their conflict supporting narratives that prevent peace making process and cannot go easily through a societal change that is required in order to achieve peaceful settlement of the conflic

Indices of population change are frequently used to communicate important trend patterns for species. However, for such indices to assist the objectives of biological conservation, a deeper understanding of the factors that drive population change is essential. In this seminar, I present results from my PhD research where I investigated factors regulating populations of temperate woodland birds; a group considered to be in decline throughout Australia.

PUBLIC LECTURE
Vision, ageing and driving
Friday, 31 October 2014 at 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Lecture Theatre Anthony Low Building 124, Eggleston Road, ANU
The safety of older drivers is a challenging and emotive issue. While the majority of older drivers are relatively safe, there are a small proportion of drivers who are unsafe, and the number of individuals in this group is likely to increase as our older population grows. One factor that can potentially contribute to reduced driving safety is visual impairment which becomes more revalent with increasing age. However, while it seems obvious that good vision is critical for safe driving, there is still much debate regarding which specific visual functions are important for safe driving, the level of visual impairment at which driving performance is affected and how various age-related eye diseases impact upon driving performance and safety.
