Indigenous Interests and Identities - ANTH821

This unit examines the relationship between policies, governmental and organisational practices and everyday life in Aboriginal Australia. Selected policies in relation to welfare, health, the criminal justice system and land-based issues will be discussed. Aboriginal viewpoints and self-imaginings will be central to the course. Further, students will be introduced to new critical work that deals with the co-constitution of Indigenous and non-Indigenous identities in overlapping realms. The unit also raises questions to do with collaborative community-based research methods and non-traditional research outcomes.
