CrissCross Conference: 11-12 December 2017

The CrissCross Conference is the inaugural research, planning and strategy workshop of OLIRN (Ongoing Legacies of Discrimination and Violence Network), a new international network initially linking researchers in Canada and Australia (2017), with likely development into further links with researchers in UK and Sweden (2018/2019).

The OLIRN-CrissCross Conference focuses on the following conference themes/streams:

  • Exploring conceptualisations, memories and representations of gendered, ethnic, sexual and racial inequalities, discrimination and violence
  • Considering how various past/present cultural forms – literature, film, television, visual arts and multimedia – might respond to and be generated by diverse cultural groups to register legacies of discrimination and violence, and produce spaces of critique and agency
  • Engaging with past/present political, policy and legal responses to gendered, ethnic, sexual and racial inequalities, discrimination and violence: examining their design, implementation and evaluation as well as what might be regarded as innovative responses
  • Investigating past/present prevention-oriented practical interventions for gendered, ethnic, sexual and racial inequalities, discrimination and violence
  • Interrogating how interdisciplinary research might usefully analyse and intervene in ongoing legacies of inequalities across sexual, ethnic, gendered and racial axes

Conference date: 11-12 December 2017

Venue: Level 7, Ingkarni Wardli building, University of Adelaide
