This subject examines the history of encounters between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, since 1788. Students will be introduced to a wide variety of such cross-cultural encounters, the different contexts in which they occurred, the way these encounters have been represented and the issues involved in studying them. The subject will focus on a number of Indigenous leaders and communities; non-Indigenous migrants, missionaries and colonial administrators. Specific studies will focus on locations throughout Australia and themes including land and violence; dispossession and control; missionary and humanitarian ventures; government policies and ideologies; friendship and negotiation; language and education; children and gender. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to reflect on the political nature of representing Indigenous pasts in histories, museum displays, public memorials, the media and universities and reflect on the ongoing nature of the history of colonialism in Australia.
