Students will be introduced to Indigenous Australian writing, performance and cinema to explore the ways Indigenous Australian peoples use creative endeavours to express Indigenous perspectives and challenge dominant culture control over Indigenous cultural expression. Critical perspectives are applied to identify underlying constraints inherent in non-Indigenous portrayals of Indigenous Australian peoples and cultures and interprets texts produced by Indigenous Australians for their political and cultural activism. Students will consider and participate in contemporary literary spaces in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous content and perspectives are negotiated.
