The papers in this issue emerged from the inaugural Knowledge Intersections Research Symposium held in May 2017 at the Desert Peoples Centre campus of Batchelor Institute of Indigenous Tertiary Education located in Alice Springs, Australia. The theme ‘Knowledge Intersections’ was Adopted for the research symposium and has continued into this volume. The symposium was held in conjunction with the 2017 Northern Territory (NT) Writers’ Festival, which had the theme of ‘Crossings | Iwerre-Atherre’. The language in the title came from local Arrernte people who interpreted crossings as iwerre-atherre, meaning two roads meeting, neither blocking nor erasing the other; two-way learning or travelling together.
