Summary
"During preparations for the 1866?67 Intercolonial Exhibition in Melbourne, some humanitarian segments of the press hoped that the exhibition would provide a forum to consider the thorny issues of settler colonialism, violence against Australian Aboriginal peoples and their fate. This chapter explores the terms upon which the question of the 'native races' would be 'gone into' at the exhibition. Besides the written aspirations of exhibition organisers, it argues that other prevalent ideas on race were apparent, based on a reading of the historical context in which the exhibition occurred, and scrutiny of the exhibition?s catalogue and the displays themselves. The chapter reveals the anxieties and multivalencies of racial discourse in the late 1860s in south-eastern Australia." (Authors abstract)
