AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The issue of how the colonial past could be constructed as history is of central importance in Pacific Islands and Australian history. The article approaches this issue by discussing Hermann Hiery’s revisionist history of the Madang Revolt of 1904, and various representations of the Forrest River massacres in Western Australia in 1926. It argues for postcolonial histories that are guided by ethical considerations and informed by poststructuralist concerns.' (Publication abstract)
