Symposium: Migrants’ Voices in the 2022 Australian Federal Election

Event Venue:

Deakin Downtown 727 Collins StreetDocklands, VIC, 3008, Australia ( Map )

Teams of HDRs, ECRs, and scholars identifying from the Global South are strongly encouraged to apply. *Please note this event is run by our Governance, Development and Peace Stream.


Ethnic voices have long been marginalised in the research of Australian federal elections, including on social media.

This two-day joint synopsium will focus on a variety of political information produced, mobilised and consumed by diasporic communities during the 2022 Australian federal election.

The synopsium seeks to cultivate diversity, equity, mentorship and interdisciplinary collaboration.

We invite proposals on themes that include, but are not limited to:

  • Mapping out a diverse range of actors and factors that shape Australia’s multi-ethnic public sphere during the election;

  • Migrants’ political literacies that inform their civic participation;

  • The production and/or the circulation of election-related news information among diasporic communities.

Please email if you are interested in attending!
