Social Work and Sexualities Conference
August 8 - August 10
This three-day conference will feature keynote presentations from Professor Gerald P. Mallon (National Center for Child Welfare Excellence, Hunter College, New York, USA); Professor Nengeh Mensah (Social Work, Université du Québec à Montréal, Canada); Gina Metallic (Mi’kmaq Social Worker and Community Organizer, from the Listuguj First Nation); and Dr Damien Riggs (Associate Professor, University of Adelaide). The main conference theme highlights the ways in which a plurality of sexualities, genders and various intersectionalities converge to shape contemporary society. This conference thus aims to explore how these complexities inform social work practice, research and education for not only academics but also practitioners and service users.
