Amelia Walker lectures in Creative Writing at the University of South Australia on Kaurna Yerta (the lands of the Kaurna people). As a writer-researcher, she is interested in methods and methodologies that use creative practices – especially poetry – to raise subjugated knowledges and provide new insights into social, cultural, political and ecological challenges of our times. Her critically-creative and oft-collaborative publications appear in journals and anthologies including New Writing, TEXT: Journal of Writing and Writing Cultures, Axon: Creative Explorations, Geographies of Gender-Based Violence, the Journal of Gender-Based Violence, the Journal of Autoethnography, and Poetry and Sustainability in Education.
