From the Ruins of Colonialism

(Inbunden)
Beskrivning:

From the Ruins of Colonialism throws fresh light on the history of memory, forgetting and colonialism. Focusing on Australia, the book charts how film, public commemorations, history textbooks and museums have, in a strange ensemble, become something called Australian History. It considers key moments of historical imagination, including the legends of Captain Cook and the Eureka Stockade, events such as the 1988 Bicentennial celebrations and the shipwrecked woman Eliza Fraser, whose story reflects anxieties about race and gender. This book argues for a new sense of remembering. Rather than being content with a culture of amnesia, it makes the case for learning to belong in the ruins of colonial histories. Chris Healy's investigation of these historical cultures and narratives is innovative and stimulating and will become a powerful statement for new histories.
