Lilly Brown is an interdisciplinary educator and researcher. With a background in critical Indigenous studies, education and youth sociology, her work seeks to attend to the narratives and power relations that shape social structures.
Lilly’s research and teaching focuses on 1. the possibilities education presents as both a site of positive transformation and social reproduction; 2. the ongoing colonial state violence resisted by First Peoples; and, 3. the way anti-Indigenous racism, as foundational to Australian nationhood, continues to function. Lilly’s academic practice is informed by her relationships and work with different communities in Victoria and across Australia, including with Torres Strait Islander and Aboriginal young people, their families, communities and schools. Lilly belongs to the Gumbaynggirr people of the mid-north coast of New South Wales.
