Unfortunately, Semester 1 has begun with the loss of 2/3 Women's Studies staff and students have been advised that their topics offering have been cut.
We need your help to continue to put pressure on university leadership to provide a plan for how feminist scholarship will be supported at Flinders University into the future following the loss of the teaching, research and supervision expertise provided by Dr Heather Brook and Associate Professor Yvonne Corcoran-Nantes.
It is also necessary to support gender diversity in teaching and research across the university. We want Flinders University to provide a gendered breakdown of the impact of the restructure so that the effect on women, non-binary, and trans folk can be identified and addressed. So far, I have not received any useful information through repeated requests for details of the plan to support the growth on Women's Studies that has been cited in multiple emails from College leadership.
