Let’s Talk…Social justice with Ellen Van Neervan

This week on Let’s Talk…Social Justice, Kevin Yow Yeh catches up with award-winning Mununjali Yugambeh and Dutch writer and poet Ellen Van Neerven. Reflecting on their recent appearances at the Brisbane Writers Festival and their newly released book, Personal Score, Ellen & Kevin think through the uneven playing field of the colony and its implications for Blackfullas. Drawing together the threads that flow across Ellen’s diverse collection of writings – from the short stories in Heat and Light, to the poetry collections Comfort Food and Throat, and the poetic political memoir of Personal Score – Kevin digs into the tough questions of Country and belonging; race and nation; gender and power that sit at the heart of Ellen van Neerven’s work. Get yourself a cuppa and settle in: this conversation is not to be missed.
