Karen L Martin


Dr Karen L Martin is a Noonuggal, Gwandamoopa and Pitjara woman. As teacher, Karen taught in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community-controlled education services from early childhood to adult education and has worked for over 20 years in higher education in Queensland and New South Wales. Karen’s work is award-winning and of national and international renown. She is sought as speaker because of her particular style of decolonising and transforming colonial discourses in education and research – two dominating institutions. Karen has published widely in these areas and has led small, medium and large research projects in Aboriginal education and Aboriginal research. She has been Deputy Chair of the Longitudinal Study of Indigenous Children since 2012.
