              Fighting Hard: The Victorian Aborigines Advancement League

              Fighting Hard: The Victorian Aborigines Advancement League (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Fighting Hard tells a history of the Aborigines Advancement League, the oldest Aboriginal organisation in Australia. As both a welfare and activist body, the League can be seen as the 'mother' of all Aboriginal Victorian community organisations, having spawned a diverse range of ...organisations. The League influenced the fight for civil rights and took a stand against the government's assimilation policy. Its activism with government and the United Nations predates the better known Tent Embassy and provided a Victorian, national and international perspective on Aboriginal affairs. Over the years the League has proven that despite the pervasive mythology, Aboriginal people can successfully govern their own organisations. In particular, the League has proven its capacity for managing good governance while maintaining Aboriginal cultural values.

              Unmasking the Racial Contract: Indigenous voices on racism in the Australian Public Service (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Winner of the 2019 Stanner Award Growing numbers of Indigenous people in Australia are entering historically white, structurally racist workplaces. Unmasking the Racial Contract is a study of one such workplace: the Australian Public Service. Bargallie shows that despite efforts ...to be a space of fairness, inclusion, opportunity, respect and racial equality, Indigenous employees in the APS continue to languish on the lower rungs of the institutional ladder. This original and innovative book, written from an Indigenous standpoint, is the first to use race as a key framework to critically examine the discrimination faced by Indigenous employees in an Australian institution. Bargallie provides an insiders perspective, privileging the voices of other Indigenous employees and applying critical auto-ethnography to unmask the 'racial contract' that underpins the 'absent presence' of racism in the Australian Public Service. This racial contract is maintained through the everyday racism that faces Indigenous employees in the workplace. Bargallie provides an important counter-narrative to the pervasive myth of meritocracy, encouraging readers to consider the effects of the racial contract in colonial-colonised relations in Australia more broadly.

              The late 1920s marked an extraordinary protest by an Australian Aboriginal man on the streets of London. Standing outside Australia House, cloaked in tiny skeletons, Anthony Martin Fernando condemned the failure of British rule in his country. Drawn from an extensive search in ar...chives from Australia and Europe, this is the first full-length study of Fernando's life and the self-professed mission that lasted half his adult life. A moving account, it chronicles the various forms of action taken by Fernando--from pamphlets on the streets of Rome to speeches in the famous Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park--and brings to light previously unknown details about his extraordinary life in Australia and overseas.

              This new collection by Professor Diana Eades addresses the way non-traditional language Aboriginal speakers of English use and speak English. Here she draws together some of her best writing over the past thirty years. Older chapters are brought up to date with contemporary refle...ctions, informed by her many years' experience in research and teaching as well as the practical applications of her scholarly work. The introduction includes an overview about Aboriginal ways of speaking English and the implications for both education and the law, as well as discussing the use of the term 'Aboriginal English'. To understand Aboriginal ways of speaking English leads to be better understanding Aboriginal identity, a better engagement in intercultural communication, and learning about the complexities of how English is used by and with Aboriginal people in the legal process. This is invaluable reading for university undergraduates in a range of disciplines but also postgraduate courses where theres little information available. Educated readers and students with or without a linguistics background will find the book accessible.
