Culture and Resistance: Indigenous Responses to a Globalised World

Michael Walling

This lecture looks at the place occupied by indigenous cultures in today's globalised world.
At a time when the world is confronted with economic insecurity, ecological instability and endemic cultural dilution, Michael Walling points towards alternative approaches to living which embody the struggle for physical and cultural survival in the face of environmental insecurity, corporate aggression and the criminalization of indigenous lifestyles and social protests.

The lecture explores some of the ways in which indigenous artists are drawing off their rich cultural inheritances to confront and resist the global concerns facing us today.

 

This is a part of the 2011 City of London Festival. The other lectures in this series are:
      The Relationship between Music and Sounds from the Natural World by David Matthews
      Emerging Markets and Climate Change by Dr Cameron Hepburn
      Percy Grainger: Australia's Greatest Composer by Malcolm Gillies
      Voices of the Land: Nga reo o te Whenua by Richard Nunns
