Indigenous History (BAXDC1002)

This course is designed to enable students to describe and define the patterns of contact between Australian Aboriginal societies and representatives of outside cultures throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The course examines both negative and positive aspects of government policymaking in relation to Aboriginal people in Australia throughout this period and explores the motivations and actions of Aboriginal people in Aboriginal/non-Aboriginal relations. The course also appraises the scale and nature of early contact between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in Australia and evaluates the differing attitudes of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal historians, politicians and other public commentators towards this period in Australia's settler-colonial history.
