Women’s breakfast: The Women’s breakfast will be held on campus at Sage restaurant close by the conference venue. Our guest speaker will be Professor Johanna Wyn.
Johanna is a Redmond Barry Distinguished Emeritus Professor in the Youth Research Centre at The University of Melbourne and a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences Australia and the Academy of Social Sciences, UK. Johanna was a founding member of the TASA (SAANZ) Women’s section in the late 1970s and of the feminist discussion group called Feminism in Social Theory, both of which sought to make women’s scholarship and lives more central to the discipline of sociology. She is engaged in multidisciplinary and multi-method research on the ways in which young people navigate their lives in a changing world, with a focus on the areas of transition, gender, wellbeing and inequality. Her work recognises that young people are active citizens, cultural creators and active agents in learning and wellbeing.
Johanna’s outstanding, significant and sustained service to Australian sociology over many years was celebrated at last year’s conference when she became the 9th recipient of the Distinguished Service to Australian Sociology Award.
