In Queer Minds Podcast

In Queer Minds is a limited series podcast emerging from the Human Rights Visionary Seed Grant from the School of Media, Creative Arts and Social Inquiry at Curtin University, developed with Dr Bri McKenzie, Dr Deborah Hunn and Dr Maddy Magladry. Each episode explores different issues arising from doing research in the queer community, including navigating research identity, negotiating the complexities of representing intersectional axes of oppression, and working within and beyond the constraints of institutions.

Please see a Call for Papers for a Special Issue: ‘In Queer Minds’

The CfP seeks responses to issues raised in the ‘In Queer Minds’ podcast series to be featured in a special issue of Continuum. While we encourage contributors to listen to the podcast linked below, it is not necessary to make the podcast or any of the participants the centre of the work; that is, we invite contributors to use provocations from the podcast to reflect on and discuss how some of the themes reflected in the podcast occur in their own work, as well as their own countries, cultural contexts and disciplines. Please read the full Call for Papers for areas for consideration.
