Carroll Go-Sam (B. Arch. Hons) is an Indigenous graduate in architecture, and a lecturer and researcher in the School of Architecture, University of Queensland, Brisbane. She descends from Dyirbal bama peoples in gumbilbarra country on the Herbert and Tully Bana (Water) basins, north Queensland. Carroll currently leads Indigenising the School of Architecture curriculum, ramping it up and taking it to the next level. She was previously a research fellow within Indigenous Design Place, a cross-faculty strategic research initiative funded by UQ, a recipient of an ARC Indigenous Discovery Award. Her research interests are at the intersection of Indigenous themes in architecture and place keeping. This leads to diverse works, including book chapters, conference papers, encyclopaedia entries, professional journals, online media, architectural design and written creative works.
What are the ways that Indigeneity and gender intersect? How might gender equity advocacy groups work alongside First Nations peoples? A conversation between Sarah Lynn Rees (Palawa) and Carroll Go-Sam (Dyirbal bama) examines the issues.
