Please join us for the #AusSTS2021 keynote conversation event with Prof
Kane Race and A/Prof Anne Galloway, chaired by Dr Kiran Pienaar.

*Register here: https://aussts2021-race-galloway.eventbrite.com.au

This moderated conversation event on 'Embodied Engagements' features two
prominent STS researchers whose work uniquely engages with the workshop
theme of situated practice. The discussion will touch on topics such as:

   - How we situate ourselves in relation to our objects of study
   - Methods for enacting situated practices of research
   - The role of 'place' in orienting research (especially in the context
   of the settler-colonies of Australia and Aoteroa New Zealand)
   - And how an attentiveness to 'situatedness' might also help us to build
   better practices of care

This free event is part of AusSTS 2021: Situated Practice - A multi-sited
All are welcome to attend.

*Dr Kane Race* is Professor of Gender and Cultural Studies at the

combination antiretroviral therapy was introduced to treat the disease in
1996 and has explored the impact of this event on HIV prevention practices
and gay culture in work spanning the fields of HIV research, sociology and
queer and cultural studies. He is also interested in the politics of drugs

of rare breed sheep that has transformed her research and everyday life in
ways she never imagined.

*About the chair:*

*Dr Kiran Pienaar *is a lecturer in Sociology at Deakin University,
