#Letthemstay: Visual Representations Of Protests And Community Mobilization For Asylum Seekers In Australia, Shirley Hall, Caroline Lenette, Samantha Murray, Connie Chan, Ashley Flannery, Kate Vickery Mar 2018

#Letthemstay: Visual Representations Of Protests And Community Mobilization For Asylum Seekers In Australia, Shirley Hall, Caroline Lenette, Samantha Murray, Connie Chan, Ashley Flannery, Kate Vickery

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

The indefinite mandatory detention on the mainland and in offshore processing centers of asylum seekers applying for protection in Australia is particularly controversial due to the government’s notoriously harsh policy. In response, large-scale public protests have been staged across the country in recent years to register popular dissent and convey concerns to decision-makers. However, dominant media representations of protests have historically been largely negative, often cast as ineffectual at best, and at worst, violent clashes that alienate the broader population from the cause in question. This paper outlines a visual analysis of media representations of protests that took place ...


“No More Blackface!” How Can We Get People To Change Their Minds About Zwarte Piet?, Janelle Ward, Renata Rocha Mar 2018

“No More Blackface!” How Can We Get People To Change Their Minds About Zwarte Piet?, Janelle Ward, Renata Rocha

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

When Sinterklaas arrives in the Netherlands in December, he is accompanied by Zwarte Pieten made up in blackface, with afro wigs and bright red lips. Zwarte Piet, translated as “Black Pete,” has created growing controversy as a hurtful, racist caricature. Increasing voices demand change, but most of the population is opposed to altering the tradition. One way forward is to examine attitude change, and gain insight into how we can facilitate this process. This paper introduces the topic and reviews recent academic work on the controversy. Then, using autoethnographic vignettes (Humphreys, 2005), we explore our experiences with the tradition, weaving ...


Who Gets In? The Price Of Acceptance In Canada, Chavon A. Niles Mar 2018

Who Gets In? The Price Of Acceptance In Canada, Chavon A. Niles

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

The Canadian nation state is often applauded for its open and welcoming attitude towards Others. The Prime Minister of Canada has openly stated that “Diversity is our strength.” However, who gets in suggests who and what Canada values. Through the stories of Jazmine, Nico and Harold shared by Global News, I will illustrate how Canada continues to discriminate against people with disabilities. Using critical disability studies and critical race theory, I explore the assumptions the “excessive demand,” point system, and medical exam make in labelling and disregarding disabled applicants who are read as undesirable and unworthy. Finally, I reflect on ...

Personae Non Gratae, Laura Bisaillon

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

The Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis has traditionally published creative pieces. We believe that this expression is a reflective way to contribute to critical issues in social justice. It was important to the author that this poem has a bilingual appearance. The poem was originally written in English and translated to Amharic.


The Weaponisation Of Language: English Proficiency, Citizenship And The Politics Of Belonging In Australia, Rachel Burke Dr, Nisha Thapliyal Dr, Sally Baker Dr Mar 2018

The Weaponisation Of Language: English Proficiency, Citizenship And The Politics Of Belonging In Australia, Rachel Burke Dr, Nisha Thapliyal Dr, Sally Baker Dr

Journal of Critical Thought and Praxis

Calls for greater protection of national boundaries – both physical and ideological – and the politicising of immigration and citizenship are increasingly characteristic of the global geo-political landscape. Several signatory countries to the UNHCR refugee convention have sought to legislate higher levels of language proficiency for citizenship eligibility. Most recently, this has been attempted in Australia, reigniting controversy about the use of language testing to assess a potential citizen’s ‘worthiness’. In this paper, we identify contested conceptions of belonging and citizenship, manifested in mediatised debates around language proficiency and citizenship which emerged following the announcement of proposed changes to Australian citizenship ...
