This subject will introduce students to Indigenous Knowledges and how it is defined in various contexts including historical, cultural and political perspectives. Students will have the opportunity to explore the similarities and differences of Indigenous peoples experience. Globally, Indigenous academics have critiqued and argued the limitations of the western academy and its failure to accurately represent and interpret the lived experiences of Indigenous peoples in their various locations and diverse historical, cultural, political and economic contexts. This subject moves beyond merely criticising Western research methodology and suggests more culturally appropriate methodologies and theoretical frameworks that are informed by Indigenous Knowledges. The course highlights fundamental considerations needed to improve research with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.
