About Dr Stuart Barlo

Dr Stuart Barlo PhD BIndigSt(Hons)
Stuart Barlo is an Aboriginal man from the Yuin nation from the far south coast of New South Wales. 

Stuart has been a lecturer at Gnibi College for the past three years, teaching and writing courses.  He is also in the third year of the journey that is his doctoral studies.  His PhD uses Indigenous Australians’ understanding of the concept of yarning and its underlying principles and protocols to develop an Indigenous research methodology. Stuart then used this method to understand and investigate the restoration of dignity for Aboriginal men. This process has prompted a dialogue on the theory surrounding the concept of the agency of Indigenous knowledge.
Prior to this, Stuart was a social worker working in remote Australia and in disability services before undertaking a Bachelor of Indigenous Studies and moving to academic work.
