Syllabus:

Prior to colonisation of the continent of Australia there were some 250 pre-existing Aboriginal cultural and language groups who had successfully maintained sustainable lifeways which had a symbiotic relationship with the land, the environment, the cosmos. Following the 'frontier' period when many of these lifeways were disrupted or destroyed, the twentieth century was a time of consolidation of the nation as 'Australia'. It was also a time when Aboriginal Australians continued the struggles for social and political recognition as equal peoples of the nation. The aim of this course is to give students an understanding of Aboriginal experiences of life in twentieth century Australia. It explores a broad range of topics which were/are of continued significance to Aboriginal people. Central to the Course is the academic and socio-political positioning of the Aboriginal experience in relation to discussions on government policies, institutionalisation, Aboriginal art and literature, and Aboriginal political movements. Through a range of tasks including independent research, small group discovery workshops and engagement with external primary document repositories students will develop an informed critical understanding of the experiences of Aboriginal Australians and the impact of that history on contemporary Aboriginal populations. Students will also be engaged in developing a working knowledge of Indigenous research methodologies and the ethical requirements when writing on or researching about and with Aboriginal people as set out in National Ethics guidelines. A targeted course outcome is that students will develop skills in articulating that knowledge in everyday practice.
