Summary
The impetus for this enquiry came from two experiences with an Aboriginal Other, which prompted the initial research questions: "Why does the existence of an Aboriginal Other threaten a white sense of belonging?" and; "What are the mechanisms and purposes of aggression towards, or exclusion of, that which represents otherness in the Australian context?"; in the introductory chapters, the author's experiences at Lake Mungo and Legend Rock are presented as case studies to illustrate Wittgenstein's (1953/1968) concept of the ways that subject positions are constructed through language games and hegemonic discourses; psychodynamic theories of identity formation have been applied to the analysis of these cases to argue that the unconscious construction of Australia as a good, white and Christian nation has acted to overwrite Aboriginal perspectives and to position Aboriginal people at the margins of society [from abstract]
