Daphne Habibis is an Associate Professor of sociology and Deputy Director of the Institute for the Study of Social Change. Her career is concerned with understanding and addressing social inequality. Her current work is concerned with Indigenous issues and housing, especially Aboriginal housing. She has over 60 publications and is co-author of Social Inequality in Australia: Discourses, Realities and Futures as well as Australia's best-selling sociology text book.

Recent projects include examining Commonwealth and state governments efforts to improve housing in remote Indigenous communities and an ARC Linkage grant that asks Aboriginal people for their views on settler Australian people and culture. With Dr Hookway and Dr Vreugdenhil, she has also been developing a research agenda on kindness as an ethical emotion that extends beyond the interpersonal to institutional domains.

Biography

Daphne completed her BSc and PhD degrees in sociology at the London School of Economics.   At the University of Tasmania she moved to a research intensive position in 2013 as Director of the Housing and Community Research Unit. This has involved developing the research profile and capacity of housing and urban research at the University. She is a highly active researcher in both applied and pure research in sociology and urban studies and has contributed to the School's top ranking for sociology in the 2015 last ARC round of Excellence in Research Australia. In the last three years she has attracted over $1M in category 1 grant funding, including leading two major projects. She is the leader of the Institute for the Study of Social Change's flagship project Building Sustainable Communities which addresses the challenge of developing and implementing policies and strategies that will sustain communities in places experiencing deindustrialisation.

Research Themes

The UTAS research theme of Creativity, Culture and Society is closely aligned with Daphne's research in its concern with how we can create flourishing communities and improve the well-being of the people within them. Her work centres on questions of how the state engagement with its citizens in ways that reduce social exclusion, and on how the corrosive impacts of individualism neo-liberalism can be resisted and reduced.

In the field of Indigenous studies, contemporary research has been largely policy driven. This provides essential knowledge about the economic and social conditions of Australian Aboriginal populations, but there is a need to progress these accounts by linking empirical analysis with social theory in ways that (a) demonstrate how these conditions are shaped by the intersection between Indigenous and Euro-Australian cultures (b) progress Indigenous social theory through the development of new concepts and paradigms that can be used to develop and modify existing policy interventions.  Drawing on critical race theory, and Honneth and Fraser's work on recognition, Daphne's research has contributed to both these spheres.

Daphne's co-authored monograh, Social Inequality in Australia challenges individualising explanations of disadvantage by combining statistical analysis with theoretical explanations of social exclusion, focusing especially on Aboriginal peoples. Secondary analysis of large datasets show how Aboriginal disadvantage is clustered across multiple determinants of health and well-being. This is theorized by combining Foucault’s concept of discourse with Bourdieu’s concept of symbolic violence to explain how these structural and cultural variables impact on Aboriginal subjectivities by creating feelings of self-blame sand disempowerment, thereby reproducing Aboriginal disadvantage.

Daphne has established research relationships with Indigenous communities in Western Australia, the Northern

Territory and South Australia, enabling ongoing research partnerships.   This has involved work with Indigenous and mainstream community organisations in areas including Fitzroy Crossing, Coober Pedy, Kununurra, Upper Gascoyne and Darwin.

Current projects

Telling it like it is: Aboriginal perspectives on race and race relations. ARC Linkage.

The aim of this project is to gain insights into the diversity and complexity of Aboriginal lives in the Greater Darwin area. Central to the research is the lived account of Aboriginal views on race relations. This provides a foundation for repositioning the normativity of Euro-Australian culture and improving service delivery. The findings will provide a basis for improving race relations in Darwin and inform how this can be achieved in other areas of Australia.

In August 2016, the first findings from this research partnership between UTAS and Larrakia Nation Aboriginal Corporation have been released.  This ARC Linkage grant led by Assoc Prof Daphne Habibis, Penny Taylor, Prof Maggie Walter and Assoc Prof Catriona Elder is the first study to undertake comprehensive research on how Aboriginal people view settler Australians and settler Australian culture.

Tasmania: Your island home? Tasmanian Department of State Growth.

This research generated an evidence about what attracts overseas and interstate migrants to move to Tasmania; the barriers in making the decision to move to Tasmania from interstate and overseas; the factors influencing their decision to stay in Tasmania and the factors influencing their decision to leave Tasmania.

Community engagement for the hard-to-reach: trialing participator social network mapping in Tasmania. Henry Halloran Trust.

The issue of how to build community engagement and promote pathways to economic and social inclu sion for the most excluded social groups is one of the most vexed areas of social policy. This project addresses this concern through an innovative approach designed to avoid 'benevolent othering' in areas where placebased stigma creates division and social exclusion that extend to within the neighbourhood itself. The project combines volunteering with participatory community-based action research to develop a system map that extends asset-based community development approaches by identifying how networks .operate as enablers and constraintsthrough relationships of power, trust, conflict and collaboration.

Identifying effective arrangements for tenancy management service delivery to remote Indigenous communities. National Housing Research Project.

This project analyses the impact of housing reform on remote Indigenous communities. It aims to understand how well the reforms are working and their impact on Indigenous individuals, households and communities.

Community engagement for the 'Hard to reach': Trialling participatory social network mapping in Tasmania (2015 - 2016)$27,895
Description
The issue of how to build community engagement and promote pathways to economic and social inclu sion for the most excluded social groups is one of the most vexed areas of social policy. This project addresses this concern through an innovative approach designed to avoid 'benevolent othering' in areas where placebased stigma creates division and social exclusion that extend to within the neighbourhood itself. The project combines volunteering with participatory community-based action research to develop a system map that extends asset-based community development approaches by identifying how networks .operate as enablers and constraintsthrough relationships of power, trust, conflict and collaboration.
