Anna Emina - The Great Book Return

Anna Emina is an educator, curator and writer based in Naarm. Her practice centres on collaboration and creating accessible opportunities for people of colour to connect with contemporary art in so-called 'australia'. Anna's here to chat to about the latest instalment of the Palestinian archive ’The Great Book Return’ (TGBR), which ran from the 20 Jan - 10 Feb in Brunswick West. Volume 2 of the archive expanded to include materials from First Nations, Lebanese, Syrian and Jordanian people and highlights the importance of archiving as resistance amongst stolen and destroyed books, artworks and artefacts.//


Ronny Kareni - Recent indonesian elections 

West Papuan diplomat, activist and lecturer at the Australian National University Ronny Kareni joins us to discuss the outcome of Indonesia's recent elections, with former Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto declaring victory last Wednesday. Prabowo's election has raised significant concern amongst rights advocates, who point to allegations of serious human rights abuses overseen by the incoming president in both East Timor and Papua, as well as the potential for Prabowo's presidency to function as a conduit for incumbent Joko Widodo to continue exerting political influence once exiting office.//


Dr Tamar Hopkins - Racial profiling training for defence lawyers

Community lawyer and scholar Dr Tamar Hopkins speaks with us about training criminal defence lawyers to identify and respond to racial profiling and other forms of police misconduct in Victoria. Tamar's PhD thesis, which won the Australian Legal Research Awards PhD Award in 2023, examined the meaning of racial profiling and its application in the Australian context, in the absence of a formal system of identification and potential accountability for victims of police misconduct. Tamar, who has been working, researching and writing on police powers since 2005, will be running the well-regarded Stop, Question and Search/Racial Profiling Training for Defence Lawyers in Victoria training again on Tuesday 12 March - find out more here. //
