AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This project uses extensive archival and interview-based research to complicate a popular and widely accepted narrative about an Australian Indigenous WW1 soldier. Through a series of interventions in the vocabulary and key plot-points of this narrative, Douglas Grant: The Skin of Others identifies various strategies that were employed in previous biographical accounts. In so doing it brings attention to the (un)reliability of dominant-culture narratives, and to the formal and rhetorical structures of history-telling in audio-visual media, and in history more generally.'
