Friends of the library and members of the public are invited to a session with editors Peggy Brock and Tom Gara.
Colonialism and its Aftermath traces the ongoing impact of colonialism on Aboriginal individuals, communities and cultures, the disruptions and displacements it has caused, and Aboriginal responses to these challenges.
Despite catastrophic interventions in the lives of Aboriginal people during and following colonisation, many communities retain strong identities and cultural and linguistic knowledge, rooted in a deep connection to the land.
Peggy Brock is Emeritus Professor of History at Edith Cowan University; Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Adelaide and Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia.
Tom Gara has been a professional historian for more than 25-years, specialising in Aboriginal history.
Praise for Colonialism and its Aftermath:
'This well researched and written publication has filled many gaps in previously unknown aspects of Aboriginal history and should be highly commended and required reading for anyone interested in the invasion and subjugation of [this] previously well-ordered society.' - Nic Klaassen, Flinders Ranges Research
