Professor Emerita Diane Bell
27 July 2014, 2:00pm-
Conference Room, Level 4

“Anthropology is a stance on life” Professor Emerita Diane Bell declares as she takes us on a fast-paced journey of her past 40 years working as an anthropologist in Australia and the USA. She has written on land rights,  women’s rights, religion and the environment. She contested a proposal to build a bridge to Hindmarsh island, which would have destroyed a Ngarrindjeri women’s sacred site in SA; ran for the federal seat of Mayo; turned her hand to fiction and blogs and campaigned to protect the Murray Darling river system. Can there be retirement for a feminist anthropologist? “Too much work remains” says Diane.
