Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Spirituality with Dr Garry Deverell

  • (+GST for Australian members

Registration is closed

Dr Garry Deverell will facilitate a zoom webinar on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander spirituality. Participants will be introduced to the most important themes in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander spiritualities, cosmologies and ways of living which will include:

  • a consideration of country, kin, dreaming, ancestor-creators, elders, moieties and totems.
  • a discussion of the myriad ways in which these ‘traditional’ realities have survived and thrived through the colonial period, as well as
  • some comments on how all this might pertain to the project of decolonisation in the arts.


The Reverend Dr Garry Deverell (DipEd, BA, BTheol (Hons), PhD) is Lecturer and Research Fellow in the new School of Indigenous Studies at the University of Divinity. A trawloolway man from northern lutrawita (Tasmania), Dr Deverell is the author of Gondwana Theology (Morning Star Press, 2018) and The Bonds of Freedom (Paternoster, 2008). He is a graduate of the University of Tasmania, the Melbourne College of Divinity, and Monash University (where he completed doctoral studies in 2004). He has held the Sanderson Fellowship and a lectureship in liturgy and preaching at the Uniting Church Theological College as well as the Turner Fellowship at Trinity College Theological School, both within the University of Divinity. Garry is an international expert in sacramental studies, especially insofar as sacraments intersect with theories concerning the formation of human selves in community. His more recent research has turned towards theologising the experience of Indigenous peoples within and beyond the colonial church.
