Riding the throughflow: disrupting colonial discourse through cultural humility

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Indonesian Throughflow is an ocean current that traverses between the Pacific and Indian Oceans. It is an apt metaphor for an educator and researcher situated at the “Top End” of Australia, who teaches and supervises Indigenous and international students and traverses cultural straits and currents in her research within South- East Asia. This chapter explores notions of cultural competence and how elevating the importance of culture as part of dedicated practice in cultural humility is presented as a way forward to build more sustainable and equitable educational relationships in these contexts.
