Theresa is a Senior Lecturer in Sociology & Anthropology at James Cook University. She is a Research Fellow of The Cairns Institute, and Theme Leader of the Social & Environmental Justice Group. Her research focuses on Aboriginal activism and self-determination and she is committed to using her academic work to contribute to social justice. Theresa reckons you should quit dragging your feet and go see your supervisors…. Right now. Oh and supervisors, if you could introduce your students to the cool people you know and talk them up a tiny bit it would make the whole conference networking thing wayyyyy less awkward.
