From: TASA

Acknowledgement of Country


Dear ~~first_name~~,
As mentioned last week, during TASA Thematic Week, we will be participating in and listening to sociological presentations delivered from across different nations in Australia. This email is a friendly reminder that to mark this, I would like to invite your participation in an Acknowledgement of Country.
To be part of this is very simple. I ask you to record a short video of yourself saying the following:

“My name is _________________. [short pause] I am joining from the unceded lands of the _________ people”

You can email the recording to me at When you email through this recording, please also provide in the body of your email the completed version of the above text for captioning purposes. If you are unable to email your recording and text for captioning, you can share them with me via Dropbox instead.

When recording your video, it would be ideal to use the following settings: 1080p at 25 frames per second. If you are unable to change your settings – or don’t know what I am talking about – please do not worry as we can work with what you can provide.

Note that you do not need to be part of TASA Thematic Week to be involved in the Acknowledgement of Country.

Your video and accompanying text for captioning (as per above) are due to me by this Friday 29 October, 5pm. Again, my email address is

I appreciate your involvement and I look forward to receiving your video.
