Dr Romaine Moreton

  • Dr Romaine Moreton is from the Goenpul Jagara people of Stradbroke Island and the Bundjulung people of northern New South Wales. She was awarded a PhD from the University of Western Sydney in 2007. Her thesis, “The Right to Dream” proposes an Indigenous philosophy of storytelling and embodied knowledge. She was recently appointed to the position of Research Fellow/Filmmaker in Residence in the School of Media, Film and Journalism at Monash University where she is investigating the historical and international dimensions of Australian Indigenous filmmaking. She is also currently working on a large scale, trans-media exhibition One Billion Beats, in collaboration with Campbelltown Arts Centre. This work reframes ethnographic material, and, through audience engagement, explores issues of contemporary transmedia storytelling and Indigenous cultural heritage preservation.
