|Subject Overview:|| |
The histories of Indigenous peoples in Australia and the Pacific are in this subject examined in the context of European colonisation and ongoing contact with European settlers, traders and colonial governments. Spanning the early colonial period to the era of nuclear testing, formal independence and "post" colonialism, the subject focuses on the nature and continuity of colonial power relations. conflict. and resistance or survival. In particular we will consider how Indigenous peoples in Australia and the Pacific have responded to colonial land dispossession and forced relocation and removal from land and families.
