Course Description: From the moment of Australia's discovery by Europeans, the history, life, and culture of Aboriginal people has been a subject of intellectual fascination. In the 19th century their social and cultural practices were widely believed to open up a window onto the origins of religion and European social institutions. More recently they have become a sociological, evolutionary, and ecological prototype of the hunting and gathering way of life. This course examines the details of traditional life, including subsistence economy, land ownership, social organization, marriage arrangements, religion, magic, art, and totemism, and consider its impact on the European imagination and the production of social theory.
