17th Dymphna Clark Lecture – Professor Megan Davis

The promise of the Uluru Statement from the Heart: The past, the present and the future of First Nations Australia

Professor Megan Davis is Pro Vice-Chancellor Indigenous and Professor of Law at the University of NSW. She was recently appointed the Balnaves Chair in Constitutional Law and she is Acting Commissioner of the NSW Land and Environment Court. She was a member of the Referendum Council and the Expert Panel on the Recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Peoples in the Constitution; was an expert member of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (2011-2016); and is the Chair of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s Expert Mechanism of the Rights of Indigenous peoples.

Dymphna Clark (1916–2000) was a noted linguist, language teacher, translator, scholar, environmentalist and campaigner for Indigenous rights. Manning Clark House Inc was founded by her in 1997 to ensure that the kind of cultural and intellectual activities that had occurred in the house during her and Manning’s lives would continue into the future. To honour her memory the Dymphna Clark Lecture has been held annually or biennially since the inaugural oration in 2002; this will be the 17th in the series.
