Culture, Knowledge, Property

By Stephen Pritchard

Representations of Australian and New Zealand Indigenous cultures, identities and rights within legal, historical and anthropological discourses are examined here. By reference to cases studies on such topics as the definition and interpretation of tattooing in relation to cultural property, Indigenous art, reconciliation, Aboriginal sacred secrets and the Hindmarsh Island affair, and crime and violence, Dr Pritchard considers issues relating to the definition and representation of culture, knowledge and property, as well as their implications for more general discussions of postcolonialism, indigeneity and cultural politics.
