Moving Anthropology: Critical Indigenous Studies 

Emma Kowal with the book cover

Charles Darwin University Press announces the impending publication of an exciting new contribution to Indigenous studies, Moving Anthropology: Critical Indigenous Studies.

This collection of essays provides diverse aspects of contemporary Australian race relations, from the Indigenous music industry, to Toyota's in remote communities, to the repatriation of sacred objects, and the reception of the New History in the bush.

Edited by Tess Lea, Emma Kowal and Gillian Cowlishaw, these challenging and controversial contributions to current debates show how anthropology is ideally positioned to bring new insights to Indigenous studies.

Said Professor Aileen Moreton-Robinson, University of Sydney, “The chapters in this book are a timely intervention into a field of study identified as Australian Aboriginal Anthropology. They seek to provide the reader with new perspectives about what critical Indigenous studies can offer.”

Contributors include Andrew Lattas, Elizabeth Povinelli, Gillian Cowlishaw, Franca Tamasari, Tim Rowse, Dipesh Charkrabarty and David Turnbull.

This publication will be out in February, but is available to order through the CDU Bookshop now. For more information and details on how to order your copy see the attached flyer, or phone the Bookshop on 08 8946 6497.
