'The difference identity makes' - Lawrence Bamblett launches new book
The ANU School of History is pleased to be officially launching the book ‘The Difference Identity Makes’ edited by Lawrence Bamblett, Fred Myers and Tim Rowse.
Through the struggles of Indigenous Australians for recognition and self-determination it has become common sense to understand Australia as made up of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people and things. But in what ways is the Indigenous/non-Indigenous distinction being used and understood?
“In The Difference Identity Makes”, thirteen Indigenous and non-Indigenous academics examine how this distinction structures the work of cultural production and how Indigenous producers and their works are recognised and valued.
The event will take place in the Harry Hartog bookstore, ANU (University Avenue, building #153) on Wednesday, 22 May from 6pm to start.
