The role of primitive arts in mythology
Improving the understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal art
East of England
I am a writer, lecturer, public speaker and company director. My discipline is history and my specialisation is mythographology.
In terms of my Fellowship and how it benefits those fortunate enough to become Fellows, for me, as a human being speaking to you now through digital text, without the comfort of human interaction, what I say is: this changed my life.
I am sincerely grateful to the Fellowship, who understood much of what I was trying to do when others did not. Perhaps it is easy to perform tasks but in my case, where the essence of the Fellowship was embedded in an understanding of institutional racism and cross-cultural research, it has taken 20 years to resolve the consequences of the work.
I am on the cusp of publishing my work resulting from the Fellowship, a book entitled Bones or Remains: A Disinterment of History. My indigenous friends in Australia have stood by me in taking my time to disseminate the experience I had on my Fellowship. Their sense of time and urgency is not the same as ours. You can see some of my work at Mythologies by Jack Adams on YouTube. The Fellowship is brilliant.
