Summary
"Taking the absence of Aboriginal people in rural South Australian settler descendants' historical consciousness as a starting point, Memory, Place and Aboriginal-Settler History combines the methodologies and theories of historical enquiry, anthropology and memory studies to investigate how and why the colonial past is known, represented and understood by current generations. The author draws on archival research, interviews, oral histories, fieldwork, site visits and personal experience to closely examine the diverse but interconnected processes through which the past is understood and narrated. Concluding that the colonial era is primarily and most powerfully known through lived experience--through dwelling in place, material objects, family stories and everyday social interaction--this deep history demonstrates how, by unsettling taken-for-granted assumptions, a process of settler-Aboriginal reconciliation can be facilitated"--
