AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Yuendumu everyday explores intimacy, immediacy and mobility as the core principles underpinning contemporary everyday life in a central Australian Aboriginal settlement. It analyses an everyday shaped through the interplay between a not so distant hunter–gatherer past and the realities of living in a first-world nation–state by considering such apparently mundane matters as: What is a camp? How does that relate to houses? Who sleeps where, and next to whom? Why does this constantly change? What and where are the public/private boundaries? And most importantly: How do Indigenous people in praxis relate to each other?...' (Source: Publisher's website)

[Review Essay] Yuendumu Everyday : Contemporary Life in Remote Aboriginal Australia Elizabeth A. Povinelli , 2012 single work essay
— Appears in: Oceania , March vol. 82 no. 1 2012; (p. 121)

'Yuendumu Everyday by Yasmine Musharbash is a subtle yet moving ethnography of how Warlpiri living at Yuendumu, and more particularly, how Warlpiri unmarried women living in jilimis, dwell in their contemporary houses. Inspired by the philosophical reflections of Martin Heidegger and Gaston Bachelard, but working deep within local Warlpiri ways of being, Musharbash seeks to demonstrate that the built environment does not determine life, but ways of being determine how the built environment is used and interpreted.'  (Introduction)

[Review Essay] Yuendumu Everyday : Contemporary Life in Remote Aboriginal Australia Francesca Merlan , 2009 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 2 2009; (p. 127-129)

'One of the longstanding aims and achievements of anthropology has been to write about different societies and cultures without being judgmental. Yasmine Musharbash writes about a remote Central Australian Indigenous community in this way, focusing (as the title promises) on certain aspects of everyday life. This is a valuable offering, providing insight into the way things work in Indigenous communities that most Australians are not privy to, and that many would like to know more about.'  (Introduction)
