Summary
"Explores the Aboriginal presence in Australian narratives; Studies continuities and discontinuities between what is known and what is unknown about Aboriginal people and communities, and particularly of how authors bring new terrains into the fold of meaning for consumption by a mostly non-Aboriginal audience. The study's focus on such transitions is to investigate what pedagogical opportunities lay within these textual formations for re-engaging higher education students with narratives that relate to Aboriginal people" (abstract)
