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.

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 ...

We fixed that recently and want to share it with you. Dean has another unique career trajectory that has resulted in  a whole lot of really great advice on figuring out where you might fit. Dean is a former QPS officer who worked in the Fr...

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. Go find some friends who get your jam - but firs...

We're back and so excited about what we're going to bring to you in 2023. We're starting the year with one of our excellent former students Katie.

I loved hearing about Katie's experiences and how she is using skills she learned in the Justice degree to buil...

Tune in to hear me nail some geography speak and Lucia talk about working across disciplines, travelling the world, running in the dark, and figuring out ...

Brodie knows about so many things I have no clue about - spreadsheets, being good at admin, finance.... More importantly this chat with Brodie shows insight into the importance of taking the journey of figuring out who you are, staying passionate in activism, and working with men in perpetrator programs. I loved this chat with Brodie for the honesty, the passion, and a willingness to be transparent. Brodie also gives us some insigh...

I am thankful for Jessy reflections on what it means to be an Indigenous student ...

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...

There are not many men who decide to undertake gender studies(at the time “women’s studies”), work in a rape crisis center, and build a career that includes domestic violence advocacy. Professor Michael Flood has taken up this challenge and Kelsey is not over-selling it when she says his work is prolific! We in the School of Justice are very privileged to have Michael as a colleague who cares so deeply about equity, believes that p...

Here’s another chat with one of our excellent graduates Haydn. Haydn has a job with Probation and Parole (Corrections Qld) that he thinks will be a career. As a student Haydn studied full time, became a Dad, and worked crazy hours at a servo so he has some tips on how to fit it all in! Haydn represents policy nerds who can shape a surfboard and pull a beer while considering the complexities of responding to crime. I tell you, our g...

It seems like life has been an adventure down a winding river for Ange. Sometimes it just takes a while to find your jam and Ange has had an excellent tour of all the interesting things to come to academia. . I learned things about my favourite office buddy that helped me feel okay about sometimes just not knowing what I want and doing what ever it is that looks good at the time. Things I love about Ange include an excellent an cri...

In this chat with Monique we talk about finding surprising opportunities and making the most of them. Monique graduated and started her career with Corrections, felt the big challenges and rewards of being in that space, learned some lessons about work/life balance, and now is addressing systemic issues in her role with KPMG – somewhere we usually don’t think our graduates end up. I love how Monique has found her space and is thriv...
