Project: More than family history: race, gender and the Aboriginal family in Australian history
Dr Victoria L Grieves
Arts and Social Sciences
This project will explore Aboriginal family histories. Historical processes and complex interplays of race and gender within the colonial period across space and over time make for complex layering in diverse Aboriginal families. Research into Aboriginal family formation reveals a strong basis for identity and wellbeing through telling foundational stories within the narrative of the nation.
