AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Russo utilises Ghassan Hage's phrase 'polluting memory' in her reading of the poetry of Oodgeroo Noonuccal to draw attention to the intersubjective and reciprocal act of wrting/reading, and to suggest that Oodgeroo's writing contributes to 'a new logic of co-habitation' (109) between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
