Meet Dr Sean
I have worked in the field of Indigenous History for 20 years. After completing my honours, applying Russian Formalist theory to the Murri guerilla poet Lionel Fogarty, I commenced a PhD in 2000. I looked at racism in sport (AFL) using the Krakouer brothers story to do so.
In 2005 my PhD was published with Allen & Unwin as Brotherboys. In 2009 the book was adapted into a play and had a national tour commencing in 2011. In August of 2011 Legends the AFL Indigenous team of the Century was published and launched by Michael Long and Professor Mick Dodson. I am currently the Lead CI on an ARC Linkage to review the AFL’s Vilification Laws.
I have worked at the following institutions: Murdoch University (1996-2004), Kurongkurl Katitjin (2004-2006), University of Melbourne (2007-2009), Curtin University CAS 2009 to present. To visit sean’s site and for more information go to seangorman.com.au.
