The following article was published by Sydney University, surmising the 'What is Recognition?' event, which was held on Tuesday the 10th of December. Pamela Nathan, Director of CASSE's Aboriginal Australian Relations Program, was a panelist at this significant event, alongside Professor Marcia Langton and Professor Duncan Ivison. The conversation and subsequent discussions were extremely interesting and thought provoking and no doubt many of the large audience were left feeling jilted of time to explore the ideas presented in far more detail. To this end, we look forward to bringing you much more on the psychoanalytic imperative for recognition in the coming weeks.
