- Re-reading representations of indigenality in Australian children's literature: a history
- The University of Newcastle. Academic and Global Relations Division, The Wollotuka Institute
- Australian children's literature has a history of excluding Indigenous child readers and positioning non-Indigenous readers as the subject. Rather than portray such literature, particularly before the 1950s, as simply racist or stereotypical, I argue that it is important for teachers, of all students, to help readers understand how nationalist or white Australian myths were constructed on Indigenous land and knowledges.
