Join linguist Dr Greg Dickson and Kriol speaker Mr Grant Thompson for the Research Unit for Indigenous Language's first public lecture for 2017.
Northern Australia is a global hotspot of endangered languages. Growing out of the diminishing of Australia’s diverse linguistic heritage is a new language, Kriol. Based on English but pulsing with innovations from its Indigenous speakers, this lecture shows how Kriol is a vibrant, growing language yet one with a troubled existence.

Given the inadequacy of other means of securing documents, individuals at almost all levels of Byzantine society used personal seals that they would change frequently to mark changes in their career or status. By discussing how homonymity, gender, family devotions, offices, or urban affiliation have stimulated an individual’s choice of iconography, it is the aim of this paper to demonstrate what an essential body of material seals are for any investigation devoted to the question of identity in Byzantium.

In many western legal systems, public law stands at the crossroads. Now a well–established field of law and doctrinal inquiry, public law has nevertheless either lost its self-evident "autonomy" in the continental systems (as in France) or never acquired such a privileged status (UK, and possibly Australia), despite its development. Redefining the boundaries of public law now seems more necessary than ever. This may raise questions as to the status of the core concepts in the field, and a willingness to challenge the very nature of the "publicness" of public law.
