Harris, Anne and Nyuon, Nyadol (2010) Working it Both Ways: Intercultural Collaboration and the Performativity of Identity. Australasian Review of African Studies, 31 (1). pp. 62-81. ISSN 1447-8420

This article is a dialogue between Nyadol Nyuon, a research co-participant and activist in Melbourne's Sudanese-Australian community, and Anne Harris, a lecturer in Creativity and the Arts in Victoria University's School of Education. The dialogue and commentary explores some aspects of conducting intercultural research within the education system on issues affecting African-Australian young women in Australian schools. Using an ethnocinematic research framework, and drawing on the principles of bricolage research and the radical critical pedagogy of McLaren and Giroux, this paper offers an example of arts-based methodologies that can work from within the community, sharing two sides of the same coin in a work which addresses racism in schools.
