Queers in Science - on First Nations' Knowledge
Queers in Science is an Australian initiative aiming to build community and improve support for LGBTQIA+ people working in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine) in Australia. We are returning to Midsumma for the 3rd year running to present our Queers in Science Lecture Series. These lectures display the amazing work of queer scientists in areas of timely interest to the general public. This year’s two lectures are on the topics of Neurodiversity and First Nations Knowledge.
Queers in Science acknowledges First Nations people as the first scientists and as such this second instalment in our series features two Indigenous queer scientists, who will present their exciting research from their unique standpoint. After the lecture, light refreshments will be served and attendees have the opportunity to mingle and interact with the speakers.
