Special Fay Gale Webinar: Alison Phipps

Professor Alison Phipps of the University of Sussex, UK, gave a wonderful, and poignant, talk to webinar attendees both in-person at the University of Adelaide and over Zoom on Monday the 4th of June, 2021. The event titled ‘Courage to Change: Challenging Gender Inequality and Sexual Harassment in Australian Universities,' fostered fantastic discussion and opened a really important dialogue about the practical steps and policy that has the potential to address issues of gender inequality and sexual harassment in the institution.

Fay Gale Centre - 'The Politics of Gender' Podcast

The centre was delighted to host Ava Viscariello as an intern in 2021. Ava is currently completing her Media and Politics degree and used her skills and creativity to create 'The Politics of Gender Podcast' in response to recent political events regarding gender, sexual assault allegations and COVID-19. Drawing on her experience with Radio Adelaide, Ava interviewed two Centre members with a wealth of experience in Australian politics: Emerita Professor Carol Johnson and our ambassador Natasha Stott-Despoja.

Productive exposures: Vulnerability as a parallel practice of care in ethnographic and community spaces

Fay Gale Centre members  Dr Gabby Zizzo, Professor Megan Warin and Dr Tanya Zivkovic have a publication out in the Australian Journal of Anthropology. Titled, "Productive exposures: Vulnerability as a parallel practice of care in ethnographic and community spaces,' the paper examines how a community program working with families identified as 'disadvantaged' in South Australia strategically uses vulnerability as a productive resource and a practice of care. In theorising vulnerability through parallel practices in both ethnographic approaches and this community program, we argue that vulnerability can be leveraged away from negative welfare discourses towards alternative politics of radical care and social change.
