Description:
The Wentworth Lectures honour the contribution of Sir William (Bill) Wentworth to the creation of the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) in 1964. Bill Wentworth (descendant of his eponymous forebear (1790-1872) who was a prominent figure in the early colonial history of Australia), had a long-term and intense interest in the origins, society and culture of the nation's first pioneers and settlers, its Aboriginal people. In effect the Institute's 'founding father', Bill Wentworth's vision has been acknowledged since by every Wentworth lecturer. His was a major contribution to what has become by far Australia's most important institution for the promotion of the cultures and achievements of Australia's Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islanders. In the early 1960s the common view was that something like a 'rescue mission' was needed; to make haste and 'get it all down' before it was 'too late'. People's overriding perception was of a continuing and accelerating loss of culture, and a general decline in the face of assimilatory pressures.
However, in 1978, by the time of the inaugural Wentworth Lecture, delivered by eminent prehistorian, Dr Rhys Jones, the multidisciplinary field of Aboriginal Studies or Australian Indigenous Studies, was burgeoning, as it still does today. Mirroring that change, AIATSIS is now a world-renowned research, collecting and publishing organisation for Aborigi Please click here to ask a question
