Ms Emma Gavin

Lecturer, Indigenous Studies


Emma Gavin is a Lecturer of Indigenous Studies within the Swinburne Faculty of Health, Arts & Design. Emma teaches across a range of Indigenous studies units within the Indigenous studies major and minor. 

Emma holds a Bachelor of Arts in History and a Master of International Relations, with a specialisation in Political Science. Emma is currently completing her Ph.D. in Indigenous Studies at Swinburne University. Her research seeks to uncover a counter-narrative to commonly held misconceptions of Indigenous Australians relating to identity, land, belonging, culture and engagement with contemporary Australian society and community. Emma's work uncovers the faces and places of Indigenous identity and connection to culture, spirit, land, and community through an extensive photo-series and dialog with Indigenous Australians in the Northen Territory. Emma is a Yanyuwa woman from the Gulf of Carpenteria in the Northern Territory. Her research focus with Indigenous Northern Territorians provides a unique insight as she both walks through and documents, two worlds, and their engagement with each other.
