Add some more info about this item...

Moving Beyond white fragility and saviour complex for partnership with Aboriginal Australians.

Presented by Dr Tanya Riches

Abstract: Rather than reconciliation, the Uluru Statement calls for Makarrara, "a coming together after a struggle."

This lecture will critically examine the future role of white women in coproduction of knowledge with Aboriginal Christians in light of the biblical mandate.

Dr Tanya Riches is senior Lecturer and Masters program Coordinator at Hillsong College. Additionally, she co-leads the research pilar at The Centre for Disability Studies, affiliate of the University of Sydney. This includes leading the Inclusive Research Network, which amplifies voices of Australians with intellectual disabilities. She completed her PhD at Fuller Theological Seminary in 2017, investigating the worship and social justice initiatives of urban Aboriginal-Led Pentecostal congregations. Her monograph 'Worship and Social Engagement in Urban Led Australian Pentecostal Congregations: (Re)Imagining Worship in the Spirit" was  released in 2019 with Brill's Global Pentecostal and Charismatic studies series. A co-edited volume entitled 'The Hillsong Movement examined: You can out upon the water'(2017) draws together insider and outsider scholars writing on various aspects of the Hillsong Church. In addition, Tanya has authored over ten articles and four chapters in scholarly volumes.
