QUEER SOLIDARITIES/NEW LEGACIES
AWGSA/ALGA CONFERENCE 21-24 NOVEMBER
The Bi-Annual Conference was a fantastic event: Deakin Gender & Sexualities created a wonderful program, an inclusive and welcoming space where fantastic work was showcased. Hecate will be publishing a special conference issue edited by the conference organisers. Our thanks to all of them for their hard work.
At the conference two awards were presented: the AWGSA PhD Award and the AWGSA Most Distinguished Paper award. Our warm congratulations to these winners on their fantastic scholarship.
FEMINIST RESPONSES to CHANGE THE COURSE (Suzanne Egan 2018)was also launched at the Conference. I encourage you to read this report to assess your university's responses and for strategies for us to support change and safety at our places of work and learning. Many thanks to Suzanne for her work on this important project.

Many warm congratulations to Louise Richardson-Self (UTAS) who has been awarded an ARC DECRA in the 2019 round for her project 'Hate speech against women online' (description below). It is coded 100% to 220306 Feminist Theory.
Description: This project aims to theorise online gendered hate speech against women. Women are subjected to many forms of attack online. This project will expand Australia’s knowledge base on the persistent problem of online gendered hate speech, and advance research in cybersecurity. The project expects to provide new understandings of this social issue, and nuanced evaluations of legal and extra-legal responses to determine which can be justified and which are most effective. The project will provide international and national benefits, serving Australia’s social and cultural commitment to women’s equality and to improved cybersecurity.
