AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The range of papers and research reports in this non-thematic edition of Australian Aboriginal Studies reflects the growing depth in the field of research shaping up as Australian Indigenous Studies in the twenty-first century. The papers and reports cover a range of disciplines now collectively regarded as core to Indigenous Studies, including social, scientific, historical and health research areas. Threaded through this volume is a clear mandate from communities that they now drive research agendas. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities engender and influence research projects and work in collaboration with academics to undertake the research. It is gratifying to see this evolve: best practice in ethical research, in which community agency in research is foregrounded, is a key aim of research at AIATSIS.'   (Editorial introduction)

[Review Essay] Entangled Subjects : Indigenous/Australian Cross-cultures of Talk, Text and Modernity, Jeanine Leane , 2014 single work review
— Review of Entangled Subjects : Indigenous/Australian Cross-Cultures Of Talk, Text, And Modernity Michèle Grossman 2013 single work criticism ;

'Entangled subjects: Indigenous/Australian cross cultures of talk, text and modernity by Michele Grossman is an exploration into the area of contemporary collaborative Australian Indigenous life writing. Grossman positions this research in the context of her cultural history, location and heritage as part of a HungarianJewish diaspora in New York. Because this has deeply informed her interpretative practices and, in her own words, ‘blind spots’, this self-reflexive approach has led her to question the norms that guide cultural desires, assumptions and expectations that Western readers bring to texts and their understanding and value of reading and writing more generally. The result is a critique of the conventional anthropological and literary binary between orality and literacy' (Introduction)

[Review Essay] The Lone Protestor : AM Fernando in Australia and Europe, Howard Goldenberg , 2014 single work review
— Review of The Lone Protestor : A M Fernando in Australia and Europe Fiona Paisley 2012 single work biography ;

'Until this book arrived on my desk I had not heard of AM Fernando. Few know of him, either in Australia or elsewhere. While the ‘A’ and the ‘M’ might indeed stand for ‘Anthony Martin’, the name ‘Fernando’ is moot: it appears likely the man took this name to signal his affection for Italy, where he was treated as a man, a human being. There exists no known contemporaneous likeness — neither photographic nor artistic — of the man.' (Introduction)
