Race, culture, indigeneity and the politics of disadvantage



Target audience: people in research, policy or service delivery roles within Indigenous health, social work, education, community development and related areas

Course Summary:
Indigenous affairs presents a complex and challenging work environment. Rather than focusing on Indigenous culture, this course aims to change the way participants think about Indigenous affairs. Drawing on scholarship from a range of disciplines, the course explores how cultural and racial identities are formed and how knowledge about Indigenous disadvantage is constructed over time. These skills are the building blocks of reflexive anti-racism.

Using interactive exercises, case studies and small group work, theories and debates are illustrated with real-life problems and a variety of print and electronic resources. Through building reflexive anti-racism, non-indigenous people can more effectively promote positive change in Indigenous affairs.
