Hedda Askland is shining a light on displaced communities in our own backyards

With stories of war and the impacts of global warming inundating our news, we are overwhelmed with media imagery of displaced communities in developing countries – their homes shattered and futures unclear. But what about displaced communities in developed countries like Australia?

Dr Hedda Askland is shining a light on displaced communities in our own backyards

Dr Hedda Askland, an anthropologist and member of the University of Newcastle’s Centre for Social Research and Regional Futures (CSRRF), examines the deep-rooted forces behind home, identity and belonging amongst people experiencing significant social, political and environmental change. Through her research with exile and refugee communities, as well as communities exposed to large-scale development projects, she has found we don’t have to look past our own backyards to find people suffering experiences of displacement.

“In contrast to my previous work with East Timorese living in Australia during a time of political upheaval, I currently work with local, long-established communities in Australia that co-exist with large scale industry. This project looks at people we don’t normally think of as refugees or migrants because they don’t travel across borders – some of them don’t even leave their house,” Askland said.

“…this project is looking at people we don’t normally think of as refugees or migrants because they don’t travel across borders – some of them don’t even leave their house”

Askland is currently conducting an ethnographic study in the Upper Hunter and Mid-Western regions, in which she explores people’s connection to place, their lived experiences of environmental and social change in the context of development, and the possibilities of environmentally-induced relief through movement and migration. At the moment she is working on a case study in the village of Wollar – a historic village on the edge of the Great Dividing Range that is surrounded by three open-cut coalmines.

Prior to the mining boom, Wollar was a community of about 400 people. There was a shop that sold everything from food to farming supplies, two churches, a local bushfire brigade, a mechanic, a nursery and a school. Today, only about 10 percent of the population remain, the nursery is relocating, there are only eight children left in the school and the shop is owned by mining company Peabody Energy – selling only expensive essentials. The closest town, Mudgee, is 50km away and Askland estimates the average age of residents is approximately 60 years old.

“When I speak with people in Wollar, they exhibit a real sense of distress that is connected to the future, especially in relation to the planned expansion of the mine, which will move the mine boundary to only 1.5km from the village,” Askland said.

“This is when I realised we needed to expand the current concepts we have for explaining displacement to something that is about people’s lived experiences and incorporates their imagined futures.”

As a result Askland is developing a concept she has termed ‘eritalgia’, which will assist in better understanding the role the future plays in the lived experiences of social and environmental change.

“The concept adds to the existing concepts ‘nostalgia’, which describes people’s connection to place in the past, and ‘solastalgia’, a term developed by Professor Glenn Albrecht to describe place-based melancholia, trauma or distress in the present. In contrast to these concepts, ‘eritalgia’ points to the embodied sense of displacement that may occur when there is a rupture between lived realities and imagined emplaced self,” Askland explains.

“I believe our understanding of place-based stress and relief must be expanded to incorporate people’s imagined futures, and that by creating a triadic concept such as this we can better understand displacement as an existential condition of loss, as it manifests in relation to the past, the present and the future”.

“By unpacking displacement in the context of what is happening in regional New South Wales, I will challenge conventional ways of understanding and speaking about displacement and relocation. Looking at the loss of community, questions of social cohesion, and individual sense of self as it is happening in Wollar, I am able to explore the question of home as it relates to place and mobility,” Askland explains.

“Not home as a physical place but home as a space in which our sense of self, physical landscape and social landscape are in harmony.”

“When this is aligned, people articulate a sense of home. This project will expand how we understand emplaced and existential loss, and connect it to both spatial and temporal dimensions. It will create an evidence base and theoretical framework for showing the significance of this issue, add to our understanding of the impacts development projects may have on communities and individuals, and show how mobility and migration might both cause and relieve environmentally-induced stress.”

“I hope that through this research I am able to initiate a public debate and awareness about how displacement as an experiential condition is not restricted to refugees and other migrants, but in fact can occur in our own backyard.”

Career Summary

Biography

I am a Lecturer in Anthropology in the School of Humanities and Social Science. I have previously worked as a Research Fellow at the School of Architecture and Built Environment, where I was employed in a research capacity since completing my PhD in July 2009. I hold a Candidata Magisterii (Can.Mag.) degree from the University of Bergen, Norway, majoring in social anthropology, and a Masters of Social Science and a PhD (Sociology/Anthropology) from The University of Newcastle, Australia. For my PhD, I conducted an ethnographic study of East Timorese living in Australia, specifically focusing on how political unrest and national crisis affect exiles’ experiences of self, community and nation. Both my past and present research have been published in books and international refereed journals, and presented at international conferences.

Research Expertise
My research background is in the field of social and cultural anthropology. Through my postgraduate studies (Master of Social Science (research) and PhD) I have explored issues related to migration, diaspora, exile, home, community, identity and belonging. Whereas my Master thesis considers the question of a particular group of young East-Timorese exiles in the immediate aftermath of the Indonesian occupation and explores the impact of the Australian Government's immigration policies on the situation of this particular group of asylum seekers, my PhD focuses on issues related to the broader diasporic community. My PhD thesis, entitled 'East Timorese in Melbourne: Community and Identity at a Time of Political Unrest in Timor-Leste', considers how political unrest and national crisis affect exiles’ experiences of self, community and nation. It is an ethnographic study of East-Timorese expatriates’ lives after the realisation of independence in East Timor that aims to improve the understanding of the ways in which expatriates and diaspora communities experience and relate to violence and radical political change in their home country. In my recent research endeavours, I build on my previous work with exile communities and explore questions of development induced displacement and resettlement. More specifically, I investigate questions of land use and land use change (in particular as it relates to extractive industries), kinship, displacement and home in New South Wales, Australia.

My key professional interests surround issues related to forced movement, exile, social justice and democracy, conflict resolution, development, and political, social and environmental change. Through my research, I have gained an in-depth understanding of complex issues related to nationbuilding, migration, immigration policy, communal structures, violence and unrest, and challenges related to policy and practice in developing countries. My emerging research blends my past work on social change and development with the themes of resources, environmental change and resilience. I have a strong interest in the question of ethnographic field research and, more particularly, methodological and ethical issues related to doing research in volatile communities and with vulnerable groups.

My research expertise also incorporates the themes of creativity, architectural education and design practice. In the period 2010-2014, I worked at the School of Architecture and Built Environment, where I managed a two-year ALTC project that explored the question of creativity in the context of design and architecture education. This project considered the question of creativity in architecture and design and questioned how creativity, as an aspired learning outcome of the design disciplines, can be assessed. As part of my work at SABE, I was also part of two interdisciplinary teams that worked on research project that considered (a) the themes of cultural built heritage, resilience and natural disasters, and (b) ethnography, architectural practice, creativity and management.

© 2016 (individual papers), the author(s).This paper explores crossovers between architectural practice and ethnography, with an emphasis on management structures and their relationship to organisational models. Architectural practice, which straddles creative and commercial realities, is distinguished by the emphasis on inter-personal relationships and the emergence of highly idiosyncratic and deeply complex social groups. These are often governed or restricted by complex bureaucratic, regulatory and economic constraints. The "cultural" conditions of architectural practice are highly unique to the discipline and are rarely, if ever, transgressed. Possibly, for this reason, ethnography has been a recurring theme in methodological approaches to architectural history and, in the period since the Second World War, has been widely appropriated in architectural discourse, specifically in the structuralist discourses of the 1970s. Despite this, a rigorous analysis of these connections in practice (as opposed to history) is yet to be undertaken. This paper looks at the method implicit in ethnographic analysis, and proposes a theoretical model for how this can be applied to management structures in architecture, and with an emphasis on creative practice. The paper proposes that within architectural practice is a microcosm of organizational data and that it is only through the emergence of ethnographic models of analysis that this data can be distilled.

© 2014 Archnet-IJAR, International Journal of Architectural Research.In this paper, we explore what architectural practice and, more specifically, the architectural research domain, may gain from the theoretical and methodological premise of anthropology and ethnography. The paper explores a historical link between anthropology and architecture as academic disciplines, arguing that the disciplines are aligned through anthropology's search for understanding the conditions of humanity and architecture's role in forming these very conditions. We do not intend to explicate the individual disciplines but are interested in the crossover between the two and, more specifically, what insights anthropology and ethnography may offer to the discipline of architecture. We consider the relationship between anthropology and architecture, as both a research domain and a profession, and question how anthropology-as an approach to research more so than a discipline-can contribute to the advancement of architectural practice and research.

© 2016, The Association for Computer-Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia (CAADRIA), Hong Kong.This paper aims to provide a critical understanding of the discipline of architectural education, exploring how digital technology forms part of two Australian architecture schools. Generally accepted as the unbroken and consistent existence or operation of something over a period of time, continuity represents stability without interruption. In the context of architectural design education, continuity aligns almost symbiotically with the design process; a system that facilitates a continuous loop of input, output and feedback for the designer- from defining the brief, collecting information, synthesising and presenting a design proposal. Preliminary findings of a larger research study that investigates the role of technology in architecture education, suggest that cultural patterns of technology adoption and valuation exist, valorising particular tools and establishing a framework for design teaching and practice that might disrupt the continuity of students' design process. Moreover, the study shows evidence of a disruption of continuity in design school narratives, emphasising the need to rethink design pedagogy and the place of technology herein. Reflecting on these observations, this paper explores the question: When the tools of digital technology challenge the established design process paradigm of an architectural school, how do educators respond to such a disruption in continuity?.
