Seminar description: This seminar will consider the presence and absence of critical race scholarship in the academy. Rather than make an appeal for inclusion, we consider instead the possibilities of intellectual work that is of service to the very people suffering the full brunt of racial violence. Here we consider specifically the emergence of Indigenist health humanities and the formation of the Institute for Collaborative Race Research.

MARCH SEMINAR

Seminar description: This presentation will examine the definitions and applications of critical race theory and decolonisation, in the context of the discipline of psychology. Decolonising psychology in the Australian context will be discussed with reference to the Australian Indigenous Psychology Education Project (AIPEP). AIPEP is an innovative Aboriginal-led project pioneering the way in transforming and decolonising higher education in psychology. AIPEP aims to increase the cultural responsiveness and capacity of the emerging and current mental health workforce to work effectively with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This ground-breaking project further aims to increase student support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander psychology students. Finally, we will consider and explore the role that each of us play in decolonising psychology and transforming education for the next generation of students and workforce.
