Professor of Astroparticle Physics Aaron Vincent will give a talk titled “What is the flavour of a cosmic neutrino,” a detective story to understand some of the most energetic particles ever seen in the Universe. Professor of Aboriginal Education Lindsay Morcom will give a talk titled “Niinwi-Giinwaa-Giinwi: Moving from We and You to Us,” focusing on ally-building in teacher education.
