4:00pm – 5:00pm Queering the Academy

‘I'm no prophet. My job is making windows where there were once walls.’ 
― Michel Foucault

Foucault shook up the staid heteronormative world of academia way back in the ’90s. Today subversive queer theory is everywhere and Rainbow scholars and students have occupied the Ivory Tower, taking a stand for LGBTQI identities and rights through their academic and creative writing and performance, research and jobs. In this session, queer or gender variant practitioners Ciara Cremin, Brendan Weir, Val Smith and Quinn Eades talk about windows and walls, fences and gates – being inside and out.

Chaired by award-winning poet and AUT academic Michael Giacon
