Summary
Examines the cocept of 'humanitarianism' in the Australian setting; argues that white Australia has always needed 'humanitarianism' as part of its narrative of coloniisation; explores how 'whiteness theory' has the potential to assist in unsettling this narrative that has normalised colonialism and whiteness; case study of Chief Protector George Augustus Robinson illustrates how the need for 'humanitarianism' in Australia has led to a troubled acceptance of him as a key exemplar of this phenomenon; surveys some key non-Indigenous historians who have written on Robinson with a desire to enhance his reputation; argues that the use of certain key words enables Robinson's acceptance whose mistakes have only been minimally interogated
