Course Description: This multidisciplinary course draws extensively upon indigenous Australian (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) history and culture to provide insight into contemporary Australian issues. As well as providing a series of lectures from an academic viewpoint, this course draws upon the experiences of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from a diverse range of backgrounds through occasional guest lecturers/speakers, and through accessing other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewpoints on film and video. This provides students with a unique perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people‚Äôs experience as well as the broader human experience in Australia. Students engage critically with key issues in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs. The course provides students with the necessary academic skills to establish a balanced understanding of the cross cultural dimensions of the issues and perspectives relevant to Indigenous Australians. The course actively draws upon visiting scholars to give students ample opportunity to engage with the experiences of indigenous people in contemporary Australian society and popular culture.
