Lizzy Emery is a writer, artist and feminist researcher based in Adelaide, South Australia. She has worked as a lecturer in Textiles and Art History at The University of South Australia and as a lecturer of feminist theory at Flinders University. She is currently a Doctor of Philosophy candidate at Flinders University in the College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences. Her PhD research focuses on the subversive use of textile crafts as a creative strategy of resistance within the history of women’s domestic labour and in feminist movements.
In her work as an artist Lizzy also facilitates a range of community based art workshops and projects. Her pedagogical approach is based on creating non-hierarchical encounters between artist and participant to facilitate meaningful experiences of art-making where both parties learn from each other. As an academic and artist Lizzy's work is inspired by the politics of feminist-crafting, intersectional feminism, queer theory, punk-rock, and the work of Michel Foucault and Hélène Cixous.
