Presented by the Humanities Research Centre and supported by the ANU Gender Institute, the ANU Research School of Humanities and the Arts and the ACT Government Office for LGBTIQ+ Affairs.
Questions of sexuality and refugee or migration status remain on the margins of queer and refugee movements, policy and support services.
The first of its kind in Australia, this two-day conference aims to bring together academics, practitioners and LGBTIQ+ people seeking asylum and refugees to discuss pertinent issues of queer forced displacement and foster dialogue between official and unofficial groups invested in research and practice for coordinated solutions and better support of affected populations.
Confirmed keynote speakers include:
Professor Eithne Luibheid, University of Arizona
Lilith Raza, Queer Refugees Deutschland, Lesbian and Gay Federation Germany
Eliana Rubashkyn, Rainbow Path, New Zealand
Dr B Camminga, African Centre for Migration & Society, Wits University, South Africa
Tina Dixson, Queer Sisterhood Project, Australia
