ANTHROPOLOGICAL PHOTOGRAPHY: THE CONTINUOUS COLONISATION OF INDIGENOUS IMAGERY, by Marie Barrere-Collet
After reading "A faraway, familiar place: an anthropologist returns to Papua New Guinea", by American anthropologist M. F Smith (2013) Marie explore arguments of social scientists regarding the ethnographic audio-visual depiction of Indigenous people, the sense of ‘othering’ created and the stereotypes sustained. The power dynamic between the anthropological photographers and their subjects is also analysed to investigate any political power upheld by imagery of Indigenous peoples.
KIMBERLÉ CRENSHAW'S INTERSECTIONALITY, by Marie Barrere-Collet
"1989 was a crucial year for the history of feminism, especially Black feminism. 1989 marked not only the birth of the author of this piece but also the understanding and naming of a socio-political phenomenon called Intersectionality.

21ST MARCH, WHEN AUSTRALIA'S RACISM BECOMES HARMONIOUS, by Marie Barrere-Collet
Marie describes the celebration of Harmony Day in Australia in this thought-provoking piece with a touch of humour.
"What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘unicorn’? Colours, ‘funky’ music, smiles, happiness, rainbow, ‘hakuna matata’? That’s what comes to my mind every time I hear ‘Harmony Day’. If Harmony Day was an animal, it would be a unicorn…except, spicier."
