‘Memory, Place and Aboriginal-Settler History: Understanding Australians’ Consciousness of the Colonial Past’

Congratulations to Skye Krichauff on the publication her new book, which takes the absence of Aboriginal people in South Australian settler descendants’ historical consciousness as a starting point, then combines the methodologies and theories of historical enquiry, anthropology and memory studies to investigate the many intertwined ways the colonial past is known. The book is informed by interviews and fieldwork conducted with settler and Aboriginal descendants, oral histories, site visits and personal experience.
