Notes Welcome? is a podcast telling stories about colonised landscapes, and the people who meet in them. In this series, we talk about the difficult work of relationships between colonised, coloniser, and the many who fall outside of these categories, in three different contexts across the globe: Australia, Papua New Guinea and Kenya. We tell stories from our work as academic researchers, stories about real people in real places. In Naarm (Melbourne), where we are based, you often see ‘Wominjeka’ translated as ‘welcome’. It’s a Wurundjeri [link to acknowledgement page?] word – the language of the Indigenous custodians of this land - but welcome isn’t a precise enough translation. It actually means ‘come with purpose’. It’s communicating something deeper than just ‘come on in, make yourself at home’ – and it definitely doesn’t mean ‘you’re welcome to something’ – to land, to people, to places, to resources. And it doesn’t mean you’re welcome forever. In this podcast, we are asking the questions: who is welcome and where? Who does the welcoming? And on what and whose terms? And, of course, who is not welcome? Deciding to make our title a question – it’s intentional. Our stories help us explore different ways of accepting a welcome, offering one, refusing one, or being alert to being unwelcome, and what we can do with such a situation. We invite you to join us as we try to work out what that question mark after ‘welcome’ might mean for us, and for you.
