AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This article covers aspects of Bennelong's and Yemmerrawannie's sojourn in England between 1793 and 1795 not previously published and provides a different explanation concerning the illness that eventually led to the death of Yemmerrawannie. I also argue that both men were not paraded as curiosities but, rather, treated with respect.'  (Publication Abstract)

    'This issue of the journal maintains the diversity of articles published in Australian Aboriginal Studies: and concomitantly reveals the depth and breadth of Indigenous Studies in Australia. We have an article by Mitchell Rolls which discusses the literary work of James Cowan, critically examining his construction of Aborigines and the claims he makes about the Aboriginal metaphysical realm in light of a literary genre that is emerging in which Aborigines are cast as saviours of the supposedly alienated Western self.' (Editorial Introduction)
