AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Roy examines the 'legitimacy of the speaking subject' and concludes that 'If the speaking status of the aboriginal writer is legitimised merely by identity markers like whiteness and blackness, non-aboriginal writers like Wositzky would naturally be denied entry. However, they could claim speaking rights by speaking space of writing. Mudrooroo or Morgan are no more privileged than Wositzky in articulating primordial aboriginal identities. On the other hand, finding a vantage point in the discursive space of orality can help them archive, if not recover, aboriginal voice.'
