HHB241/341 Tasmanian Aborigines - Two Centuries of European Contact

Looks at Tasmanian Aboriginal society during the 19th and 20th centuries, concentrating on two major themes: (a) Aboriginal identity in Tasmania from the 1840s to the present; and (b) Aboriginal activism in Tasmania over the same period. Consideration is also given to conceptualising historical knowledge, the role of an interdisciplinary approach in analysing Aboriginal society and the nature of historical inquiry.
