HDR Student Symposium on Decolonial Research Practices

    The Cairns Institute will host an informal symposium for HDR students working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Far North Queensland. This symposium will explore if and how post-graduate research projects can contribute to processes of decolonization and self-determination. The focus will be on personal experiences of students trying to find alternatives to research practices that do harm and enforce colonizing power structures. The aim is to develop an informal and supportive network for HDR students grappling with practical as well as moral questions around academic research with Indigenous peoples.

    HDR students are invited to give a 15 minute presentation on their experiences, questions and aspirations around decolonizing research practices. Please submit a 250 word abstract by 28 July COB.

    Th symposium date will be Tuesday (1 Aug) from 1-5pm in D3-003.

    Anyone who is interested in these topics is welcome to attend. Afternoon tea will be provided.

    Please register to present and/or attend: linde.draaisma@jcu.edu.au
