The conference will serve as both an opportunity for PGR students to present research and a chance for members of the network to meet and discuss the future direction of the PGR arm.
Conference themes include:
White settler colonies and imperialism: including (dis)rememberance of colonial pasts
Practising anti-racism: including multicultural ‘awareness’; and civil liberties and racial justice
Methodology and Theory: including understanding the historical implications of critical whiteness studies; and self-reflexivity and white privilege
Over the second day, participants will work to define the White Spaces Postgraduate network by developing goals for the network, hearing presentations on potential resources (such as online forums), establishing research connections, and mapping out future network events.
