On Friday 19 August the UQ Anthropology Museum will open an exhibition on Solomon Islands, Solomon Islands: Re-enchantment and the Colonial Shadow curated by Dr Diana Young, director of the museum, in collaboration with Solomon Islands scholars including Emeritus Professor Clive Moore, Dr Graham Baines, Associate Professor Annie Ross and David Akin. The exhibition is "based on Chakrabarty’s call for narratives that are non-temporal and non -modern to think outside the dominant (European and Australian) approach to European history.” To coincide with this exhibition, the UQ Solomon Islands Partnership and the School of Historical and Philosophical Studies at The University of Queensland presents two days of seminars.

There is no cost to attend, but we would like some idea of numbers for catering purposes, for morning and afternoon tea.  Participants will be left to get their own lunches on campus; several places will be open.
