2021 Forum Keynote - Dr lisahunter

Dr lisahunter (all one word lower case, pronouns they/them/their/it) was enculturated as a non-Indigenous person with Celtic and European deported/settler-colonial ancestry on the traditional and unceded Country of Yorta Yorta and Gubbi Gubbi people, now living and working in the traditional and unceded Country of Boonwurrung/Bunurong people in the colonised nation state of Australia. They have worked in the field of PHE for more than forty years, as a teacher in primary and secondary schools, a researcher, and a teacher educator. They have learned, lived and worked in PHE contexts in Australia, England, Scotland and AotearoaNewZealand with cultural experience in Nepal, Japan, Canada, and Hawai’i.

lisahunter pays attention to the processes of knowing-being-doing-valuing human identities and positioning in socio-eco-political cultures, particularly in relation to physical culture, wellbeing and educational contextual transitions in teacher education, leisure, bluespaces and schooling. Their work intersects with relationships and processes of pedagogy, (de)colonising/antiracism, queering, activism, sexism/binary cis heteronormativity, moving meditation, surfing and sensing. lisahunter draws on participatory, ethnographic, narrative inquiry, and multi-sensory methodologies alongside socio-ecological, queer, feminist, more-than-human and indigenous scholarship.
