Denying diversity and the betrayal of multicultural education

The Victorian Institute of Teaching’s teacher registration policies reflect colonial biases by excluding culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) educators.

Dismantling systemic barriers to teacher registration is necessary to create a more equitable and inclusive... Read More

Solid swings but not many ward wins – unpacking the results of the 2024 Brisbane City Council election

Well it’s six days since the council election, and the last few postal votes are being scrutinised closely, with the Greens frustratingly close to winning in a couple of different electorates both in Brissie and elsewhere in South-East Queensland.

Sustainable materialism as political action

Are these kinds of movements the solution to all of our troubles? Absolutely not. Do the mainly white western environmental activists doing this work think it’s everything? Of course not. But are sustainable materialist movements politically valuable? Absolutely. For this project I wanted to examine positive everyday practices, possibilities already being lived, grounded imaginaries, visions for a future that are... Read More
