Aboriginal Australia: Cultural Journeys (ANTH2605)
UNIT OF STUDY
This unit examines the societies and socio-cultural practices of Australian Aboriginal peoples and compares the anthropology of the central desert with that of other remote as well as with rural and urban areas. These regions are distinctive - culturally, ecologically and historically - yet share commonalities in practices of kin-relatedness and its 'writing' onto country, and experiences of incorporation into the nation-state. The journeys to be explored are spatial and historical to understand how mobility and mutability characterise Aboriginal practice.
