In episode 7 Carly speaks with Anna Carlson who is a cofounder and organiser of the Brisbane Free University, co-host of 4zzz's Radio Reversal and a freelance radio producer, illustrator, writer and community (dis)organiser. She is mid way through her PhD, supervised by Dr. Alissa Macoun, Associate Professor Chelsea Bond, Dr. Liz Strakosh, and Dr. David Singh. Her research examines the relationship between surveillance and colonial governance in (so-called) Brisbane, focusing on how surveillance functions to produce and maintain settler colonial regimes of possession, ownership and belonging. Anna is a white settler currently based on Yuggera country, and committed to finding ethical paths between colonial complicity, accountability, solidarity and resistance.
