The course explores significant cultural and historical factors that shaped Australian Indigenous lives since colonial settlement, and examines their effects in contemporary Indigenous communities and families. Local examples and contexts are used to enhance understanding of national issues and policies. In particular, it explores the history of Indigenous peoples’ lives in Queensland with particular attention to Indigenous responses to government policies and practices, and their ongoing impact. The course will enable you to engage directly with Indigenous sources and to critically analyse the main implications of Indigenous perspectives for the knowledges and professional practices in your chosen field.
