"Politics and Ethics of Indigenous Histories"
A discussion is envisaged on some of the major questions in Australian history: the power of representation; the importance of telling histories and the problematics of Aboriginal history in postcolonial Australia; how to, and who can, tell these histories.
Participants include Dr Richard Broome (History Department, La Trobe University), Gary Foley (activist, writer, actor and PhD student, Melbourne University) and Genevieve Grieves (multimedia artist, former Coordinator of the Oral History Unit at the Koorie Heritage Trust, and now a Fellow at the State Library of Victoria). The session will be chaired by Dr Michael Green, Head of Indigenous Cultures Department, Melbourne Museum.
