Intersectionality in research with Fatima and Benafsha
Many of us in the Humanities research in areas we are passionate about because of personal experiences and interests. Managing bias means acknowledging and accounting for this - not ignoring it. It's not always easy and sometimes it's joyous. In this episode I talk to two young Muslim women of colour who research in violent extremism. These are important voices and we're pleased to share them with you. Benafsha This podcast was developed with support from the Queensland University of Technology.

Librarians - the dragons of knowledge with Sandra Fry

Librarians - the dragons of knowledge with Sandra Fry
I firmly believe librarians are the dragons of knowledge. They hoard it, they know where to find the treasures, and they will joyfully share their wisdom and resources with you if you just ask nicely. You don't even have to ask nicely because libraries just put out maps to their, not so secret, hoards. Sandra Fry is another of my favourite QUT colleagues and she has had quite the journey getting to us. Former court reporter Sandra knows all the good things about crime and criminal justice. Listen in to hear Sandra tell us about her time with the ABC as a journalist, surviving a cancer cluster, and all the good things offered by the QUT library. Then go visit a librarian and ask them to share their joy in knowledge with you - they have such shiny things! This podcast was developed with support from the Queensland University of Technology.

It's important to have friends in academia - people who understand your jam. I think I am really fortunate to have found Rachel at ANZSOC in 2022. Rachel is doing some really excellent work in the sexual violence space including work on alternative reporting mechanisms. I also really appreciate Rachel's willingness to step up into leadership when it is not always appreciated or seen.

A politician walks into a bar... well it was my office but here was still laughter and good times. I thoroughly enjoyed recording this episode with Brett. I think this is an excellent testament to Brett's intelligence, good humour, and ability to engage with people across all walks of life.  Brett has had a really interesting career and is wonderfully reflective and enthusiastic about his achievements and all the challenges that have come along the way.

Ask all the questions is what Jessy tells us. I'm with you Jessy! We are so proud of Jessy and her passion for helping community. Jessy crams life full of good things and here, she tells us how she manages and how she stays engaged. I am so deeply impressed with what our students are capable of and where their 'real world' aspirations are taking them. I am thankful for Jessy reflections on what it means to be an Indigenous student at QUT and her advice on how we can do better to support Indigenous students.

It’s me... Jodi... on institutional child sexual abuse, crippling fear of writing, and dealing with rage.
I have been asked regularly when I was going to let someone turn the tables and interview me. My excellent colleague Adele Webb stepped up asked the tough questions. In this episode I talk about what it means to be a post-Christian, feminist, lesbian, survivor, and... academic who works in the area of sexual violence. There has been a bit in the media this last week about Christian faith and leadership (#Essendon) and happily there is some discussion about faith and how it intersects work with here. Trigger warnings on this episode for direct disclosures of sexual violence and raging feminisms! Jodi Death This podcast was developed with support from the Queensland University of Technology.
