|Subject Overview:||This subject will engage in a detailed and nuanced investigation and discussion of issues central to Aboriginal identity in contemporary Australia. Analysis will be undertaken through considering issues relating to affirmative action, and contemporary racism. Discussion will be framed within the context of contemporary theoretical and legal debates around these issues, and where possible contexted with reference to cognate developments in other countries, for instance New Zealand, the United States, France and Great Britain. A developed theoretical perspective will be used to problematise and elucidate the multiple impacts of Australian coloniality, racism and nationalism on Aboriginal conceptions of self. This subject will extend, in a more intensive and theoretically refined manner, ideas encountered in the undergraduate program.|
