'Unknowing' Institutions: Decolonisation and Critical Intersectional Practice
13.07.2021 - 16.07.2021
Flinders University City Campus, Victoria Square, Adelaide
This conference asks: what does it mean to undertake feminist, queer and related critical work within and in relation to institutions that privilege certain ways of ‘knowing’. Through this conference, we emphasise two frames to think about what it might mean to ‘unknow’ the institutions that shape our work, or through which we are positioned as subjects, or from which we seek employment. Theories of decolonisation present a challenge to feminist, queer and related critical practice to reflect on what counts as legitimate knowledge, and by extension, how identities and subjectivities can be held accountable. They also present a challenge to take the radical goals of decolonisation seriously. The 2021 AWGSA conference will bring together activists, academics, students, community leaders, artists, researchers, and policymakers to think through the idea of ‘unknowing’ in a multitude of ways.
