The shift in valuing and incorporating First Nations Knowledges and perspectives has increased over recent years.
As Deakin’s Institute of Koorie Education prepares to be at the forefront of this work, it is timely to consider its legacy and context, and offer insight into why and how First Nations Knowledges, perspectives and experience can contribute to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, the Deakin community at large and be centred in the contemporary narrative.
About the presenter
Dr Gabrielle Fletcher is a Gundungurra woman from the Blue Mountains of New South Wales. She is an Associate Professor in Indigenous Studies and currently the Director of the Institute of Koorie Education, Deakin University.
She has previously worked within Indigenous spaces at the University of Newcastle, Macquarie University and Curtin University, and has a background in critical and cultural studies, Indigenous studies and creative writing.
Her work examines Indigenous authenticity in post-colonial spaces, mobilising ficto-criticism and creative non-fiction as strategies of encounter. She is increasingly interested in post-humanism and narrativity. Gabrielle is grounded by her experience in Indigenous community and the responsibilities of remembering.
