My guest for Blacademia, Season 1, Episode 3 is the wonderful Wiradjuri sib and ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR SANDY O’SULLIVAN
In this episode we yarn about:
Their journey from being someone who left high school at age thirteen…and is now being a PhD holding, Associate Professor and Deputy Head of a School in a university!
(never heard this term before? Hint: Imposter syndrome can be defined as a collection of feelings of inadequacy that persist despite evident success)
The power of museums that work
Alternate pathways to, and through, university

For 27 years they have taught and researched across gender and sexuality, the body, performance, and design in relation to First Nations’ identity.
