Interview with Mindy Blaise and Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw
Posthumanist and New Materialist Methodologies
School of Education / Edith Cowan Institute for Education Research
This interview was conducted in the collaborative spirit in which Mindy Blaise and Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw work. At the time, Veronica was in Australia with Mindy, doing what they call “Bush Salons” in Wee Jasper, Australia—a project that has become an integral component of the Common Worlds Research Collective. We were inspired by this conversation because it highlighted for us a deep commitment to the importance of feminist collaboration and collective action in research. It was also a great example for us of how collective research can be made possible within a culture of neoliberal university settings—where individual research is highly prioritized and rewarded.
