Congratulations to Amy Thomas and co-authors for the publication of ‘Does the media fail Aboriginal political aspirations?’

Congratulations to Amy Thomas, Andrew Jakubowicz and Heidi Norman for the publication of  Does the media fail Aboriginal political aspirations? 45 years of news media reporting of key political moments (Aboriginal Studies Press, 2020). This unique study of key Aboriginal initiatives seeking self-determination and justice reveals a history of media procrastination and denial. A team of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal researchers examine 45 years of media responses to these initiatives, from the 1972 Larrakia petition to the Queen seeking land rights and treaties, to the desire for recognition expressed in the 2017 Uluru Statement from the Heart.
