What can drawings reveal about their makers? In 1953 anthropologist Mervyn Meggitt invited Warlpiri men at Hooker Creek to draw with crayons and paper. Two men astounded him with their drawings made 'for the pleasure of drawing'. Six decades later the Warlpiri men's descendants have been introduced to the drawings, triggering memories of dislocation and galvanizing attention to the present day as well as fears and hopes for the future.

Six decades later the Warlpiri men's descendants have been introduced to the drawings, triggering memories of dislocation and galvanizing attention to the present day as well as fears and hopes for the future. Remembering the future breaks new ground in writing about Central Australian Aboriginal art and makes a significant contribution to Australian anthropology and the interdisciplinary field of visual studies.

Rethinking Social Justice: From 'peoples' to 'populations'

Timothy Rowse

$39.95 RRP incl. GST
Category: Anthropology and Archaeology, History
Published: Aug, 2012
Format: Paperback
ISBN: 9781922059161

In the early 1970s, Australian governments began to treat Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders as 'peoples' with capacities for self-government. Forty years later, confidence in Indigenous self-determination has been eroded by accounts of Indigenous pathology, of misplaced policy optimism and persistent socio-economic 'gaps'. In this collection of new and revised essays, Tim Rowse accounts for this shift by arguing that Australian thinking about 'Indigenous' is a continuing, unresolvable tussle between the idea of 'peoples' and 'population'.

In 1976, Bill Rosser visited friends on Palm Island and was shocked at the restrictions the Aboriginal people living there were forced to endure. He recorded their lives and stories in his first book, This is Palm Island (Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies, 1978). In the 1980s, Rosser went back to Palm Island and this book is an account of his experiences and the changes he saw in both the people and the place.
