Dr John Stanton, Director, Berndt Museum
Bringing the Photos Home Project
Wednesday 16 April


Dr John Stanton will discuss the Bringing the Photographs Home Project, ATSIC's response to the 'Bringing Them Home' Report. The Berndt Museum's photographic collection consists of archival photographs from government and mission settlements and pastoral stations from 1920 to 1970. The entire photographic collection has been digitised so that information can be easily accessed. By providing an opportunity for people to reconnect to their families and informing younger generations, the Bringing the Photographs Home project will enable communities to begin the process of reclaiming their identities. Dr Stanton's research background includes fieldwork among fringe-dwelling Aboriginal groups in south-western New South Wales in 1971 resulting in a MA in Social Anthropology. In 1974 he transferred to Perth to commence a PhD program focusing on aspects of social change in a small Aboriginal community (Mt Margaret Mission) on the fringe of the Western Desert bloc, W.A. He has published a number of articles deriving from this research.
