2023 International conference, The Australian Centre

The Australian Centre presents an exciting conference that will delve into how contemporary injustices are enmeshed in colonial power relations with a focus on the co-constitutive relationship between climate change and colonialism. The conference will bring together First Nations and settler scholars, policymakers and public servants, artists and community organisations to build relations, share knowledge, and respond to some of the most pressing issues of our time. The conference seeks to examine what might inform, shape, and give life to a radical reorganisation of our social, political and economic worlds. It invites participants to consider how contemporary injustices are enmeshed in relations of colonial power and explore how we might (re)imagine – and indeed already are (re)imagining – more just futures.
