The apparent marginalization of feminist and feminine ways of being, thinking, and feeling in academia is examined through close readings of three narrative vignettes, which are based on memories of the everyday academic spaces of meetings, workshops, and mentoring.These stories explore moments of the breaking of ties among women and between men and women, as well as document how feminist relationalities can bind and exclude.
Ilaria's work is grounded in cultural studies of design and focuses on design activism in cities in Italy and Australia.
To address how design generates forms of resilience and resistance to complex global issues such as precarity and civic ecologies, Ilaria has developed transdisciplinary methodologies that draw on activist, historical, ethnographic and place-based methods.
According to this template, Indigenous people were displaced and coerced to perform.
While this might have been the case in many instances, this article considers a set of performances that took place as part of the exhibition, Australian Aboriginal Art, at the (then) National Museum of Victoria in Melbourne in 1929 as contact zones and moments of transculturation.
Instead, I want to use the archive to build a scenario where Loycurrie and Noorywauka used the space and time of the exhibition as a moment of exchange, negotiation, and self-representation.
This paper reconsiders the story of permaculture, developed in Australia in the mid-1970s by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren.
This paper considers permaculture as an example of counterculture in Australia.
In keeping with permaculture design ecological principles, we argue that today permaculture is best understood as part of an assemblage of design objects, bacteria, economies, humans, plants, technologies, actions, theories, mushrooms, policies, affects, desires, animals, business, material and immaterial labour and politics and that it can be read as contrapuntal rather than as oppositional practice.
This article deploys a collective biographical methodology as a political and epistemological intervention in order to explore the emotional and affective politics of academic work for women in neoliberal universities.
The managerial practices of contemporary universities tend to elevate disembodied reason over emotion; to repress, commodify, or co-opt emotional and affective labor; to increase individualization and competition among academic workers; and to disregard the relational work that the article suggests is essential for well-being at work.
