NIRAKN Race, Whiteness and Indigeneity International Conference

6-8 June 2017, Gold Coast, Queensland

NIRAKN is excited and honoured to host twelve of the leading Race and Whiteness scholars at its upcoming conference on the Gold Coast. An unmissable gathering of national and international minds, this forum will feature critical conversations relating to teaching, research and policy. It will be an opportunity to participate in increasingly voluble and global discussion about the denial and significance of race, whiteness and Indigeneity in the 21st century. There is a call for individual papers and round-table proposals that will feature in addition to the four keynote plenary sessions.
