Lily Atkinson

Postgraduate reps

Lily Atkinson (she/her) is a white settler and PhD candidate living, thinking, and writing on unceded Kaurna land, in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Adelaide. Her research is interested in the complex politics and temporalities of feminist inheritance, and the ways that time is made through and against feminized, racialised, and classed forms of care work and domestic labor. She is the co-convenor of Reading Feminism, a reading group held monthly at the University of Adelaide that spends time with underread and neglected feminist works, and spends any (hard-won!) free time volunteering at a feminist bookshop and breathing with her cat-companion. Her personal and political life is grounded in a desire to create more ethical and more expansive feminist pasts, presents, and futures.
