Spaces and exchanges
Transcript of Spaces and exchanges
The Railway Age
The Australian aborigines
The first Australian were the Aborigines. The aborigines have the longest continuous cultural history of any group of people on Earth. They were sent to reservations and forced to live off government hand-outs. They only got the right to vote in 1967. On February 13th 2008, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd gave a speech in Parliament, in which he apologized to the stolen generation.
Spaces could refer to all the different places in the world where people are living.
Exchanges are the act of giving or receiving something in substitution for something else
The British Empire
But children’s aborigines were also victim of this colonization. It’s the Stolen Generation. 35,000 aboriginal half-caste children were forcibly removed from their family by the Australian government between 1900 and 1972.
These children were taken away to white settlement and were punished with the strap and in the “boob” which was a small place of detention, detached concrete room with a sandy floor.
Different form of detention
To conclude, we can say that the two notions are linked because from long time ago people were already exchanging their culture in different spaces in the world.
The giants trees are the biggest flowering plants in the world and we can find them in Tasmania. This place make exchanges because some people come in for the same goal : to protect the trees.
Queen Victoria's reign (1837-1901) set the beginning of the expansion of the empire.
Under her reign, England fought against a lot of countries all around the world like Afghanistan, China or Canada.
During here reign, Queen Victoria's troops colonized a lot of countries where people were obliged to follow the English culture and way of life.
The decline of the empire began in 1899.
The railway age is the period during which transport by train started to grow up.
It started during the revolution of the transport with the first line built in 1885.
From there, the Great Western Railway was created in England linking first London and the midlands. This line could serve to exchange different things like coal or material, and to transport people between London and Liverpool or Manchester.
This forest of Eucalyptus regnans is endangered by the industries which want to build some roads. People who protect this famous place exchange their experiences and become friends. People who protest against forest destruction fight for the good of the Earth.
A gap year is a year before going to college or University and after finishing high school. It is also known as a sabbatical year.
Gap years are sometimes urged as a way for students to become independent and learn a great deal of responsibility prior to engaging in university life. During this year, students could do this to help an association or for their own experience.
