AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The author 'explores the complexities surrounding Aboriginal identity today. Drawing on a range of historical and research literature, interviews and surveys, The politics of identity explores Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal understandings of Aboriginality and the way these are produced and reproduced across a range of sites and contexts.'

'Emphasising Indigenous debates and claims about Aboriginality, The politics of identity explores both the community and external tensions around appropriate measures of identity and the pressures and effects of identification. An analysis of online Indigenous communities on social media that have emerged as sites of contestation adds to the growing knowledge in this area, both nationally and globally.'

Works about this Work

Whither Indigeneity in Australia? Yin Paradies , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Postcolonial Studies , vol. 20 no. 2 2017; (p. 258-261)

'Within public zeitgeist and policy paraphernalia alike, recent years have seen a steady rise in an already ever-present fascination with fixing Indigeneity to suit intensely felt (but variegated) yearnings from the far left to the far right of the political spectrum and everywhere in between. Two recent efforts to chart this treacherous terrain hail from the distinct vantage points of sociology and critical legal studies.'  (Introduction)
