In the contemporary global political climate, trans identities are increasingly visible and affirmed but are also targeted and subject to heightened violence. What is often lost in this political paradox is the unique contributions made by trans academics, artists and activists. This in-person roundtable intervenes by centring and celebrating trans history, cultural production, and creativity. It brings together renowned trans scholars who will approach these issues through their current research and practice, helping us to collectively think about trans pasts, presents, and futures.
This in-person roundtable discussion is free to attend, but registration is required. Register here: https://go.unimelb.edu.au/3rks
*Please note: this roundtable will take place at the end of the symposium Sparking joy? Reckoning with queer, trans and gender diverse histories in Australia (sponsored by the Australian Queer Archives, University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Arts, and La Trobe University’s Gender, Sexuality and Diversity Studies). A link to register for the Symposium will be made available shortly.

Bringing physical education into conversation with culture, creativity and technology
The 2023 Fritz Duras Lecture, delivered by long-time collaborators Adam Goodes and Dr Baden Pailthorpe, will reflect on Margaret Williams-Weir, Australia’s first Indigenous university graduate and a PE teacher taught by Fritz Duras. Adam and Baden will chart the links between physical education, sport and creative arts, and technology, and the relevance of these links to the future of education in Australia.
