INDG3006: De/colonising Indigenous Education

2024 unit information

This unit explores the history of Indigenous school experience with a specific focus on settler colonial contexts (Australia, Aotearoa/NZ, Nth America). Diverse schooling experiences and institutions are examined both as instruments of colonial power and a means through which Indigenous peoples have negotiated their own goals and sought self-determination. Critical studies, emergent trans-Indigenous and decolonising approaches inform the exploration of concepts and practices of assimilation, race, and the contemporary legacies of past practice.
