OverviewThis subject examines the motives and means of colonisation/dispossession across time and place, the shifting and changing political rationalities and wider intellectual influences that shaped this process, and how this in turn has shaped Aboriginal social, cultural and economic life. Through detailed case studies, students examine the kinds of movements for change that Aboriginal people and their supporters have mounted, the changing relationship with the Australian public and the formal institutions of power, the Aboriginal domain and new opportunities for change. This focus opens up wider discussions about how to interpret the past, make sense of the present and work for change in the future.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
