When we talk about 'rights' and 'justice' are we assuming that there is a shared understanding or universal definition of what those are? In this episode, Manchester Museum's Curator of Indigenous Perspectives Dr Alexandra P. Alberda is joined by Dr Christine J. Winter to expand on these ideas, discuss what Indigenous Rights can encompass from different cultural perspectives, and examine what role museums can play in supporting this work in a meaningful way.
Dr Christine J. Winter is a lecturer in the Department of Government & International Relations at the University of Sydney. Her research focuses at the intersection of intergenerational, indigenous and environmental justice.
Drawing on her Anglo-Celtic-Māori cultural heritage she is interested in decolonising political theory by identifying key epistemological and ontological assumptions in theory that are incompatible with indigenous philosophies. In doing so she has two aims: to make justice theory just for Indigenous peoples of the settler states; and to expand the boundaries of theories of intergenerational justice to protect the environment for future generations of Indigenous Peoples and their settler compatriots.
Christine Winter is the Research Lead on The Re-(E)mergence of Nature in Culture.
Manchester Museum is on a mission to become the most imaginative, caring and inclusive museum in the world, and in this podcast we will share open and honest conversations with special guests, which will inform, entertain and inspire.
Through these conversations we hope to reframe what it means for museums to care, and explore how we can build understanding, empathy and love for our world and each other.
