Paper and Talk: A manual for reconstituting materials in Australian Indigenous languages

Nick Thieberger

$34.95 RRP incl. GST
Category: Linguistics & Languages, Reference
Published: Jan, 2005
Format: Paperback
ISBN: 9780855752736

This is a concise guide and an excellent introduction to the complicated issues of language reconstruction. For example, finding out about languages that are no longer spoken, or those that are still spoken by only a few people, can be a long and difficult process. And taking texts and wordlists from historical sources and making them useful in current language programs and literature presents a variety of challenges. Each contributor to Paper and Talk works through some of the complex issues vital to language workers in an accessible, easy-to-read style.

Protest, Land Rights and Riots: Postcolonial struggles in Australia in the 1980s

Barry Morris

$39.95 RRP incl. GST
Category: Anthropology and Archaeology, History
Published: Aug, 2013
Format: Paperback
ISBN: 9781922059345

The 1970s saw the battle for Aboriginal people’s struggles for recognition of their postcolonial rights. Rural communities, where large Aboriginal populations lived, were in foment as a consequence of political, economic and major structural change, social fragmentation and unparalleled unemployment. The ensuing so-called riots, protests and law-and-order campaigns captured much of the tense relations that existed between Indigenous people, the police and the criminal justice system. In Protest land rights and riots, Barry Morris shows how those policies targeted Aboriginal people in particular.
