Download Forging An Aboriginal Identity In 21st Century Australia books, Scholarly Essay from the year 2008 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Australia, New Zealand, grade: -, University of Copenhagen (Institute of English, Germanic and Romance Studies), course: Contemporary Australia, language: English, abstract: I will begin this essay with a question posed by Bill Bryson in his traveling companion to Australia Down Under: ..". ask yourself (...) when was the last time in any context concerning (...) the rise of civilizations that you saw even a passing mention of the role of Aborigines?" Most non-Australians and possibly even most born and bred Australians would probably not award this kind of achievement to these "the planet's invisible people" (p. 265) . Although the rise of civilization has yet to be accredited to Aborigines, these peoples have come a long way in contemporary Australian society. Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders have been the source of much debate about nation, politics, morals, and tolerance in the 21st century and the recent apology given to them by the Prime Minister has sparked additional interest in reconciliation. This essay will explore the status of Aborigines in contemporary Australian society and their importance in the forging of a common Australian identity. I will draw in Sally Morgan's novel My Place to further demonstrate my points and to bring in an Aboriginal voice. This essay explores the issues that surround Indigenous Australians in contemporary society and the controversies between Aboriginals and white Australians by drawing in newspaper articles from the Australian. I will present a short overview of Aboriginal history in Australia with special emphasis on the representation of Aborigines in recently revised history. I will also touch on the importance of Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's Apology to Australia's Indigenous Peoples and attempt a glance at the future of Aborigines in Australian society.

Language And Aboriginal Culture In Australia

by Oliver Röder, Language And Aboriginal Culture In Australia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Language And Aboriginal Culture In Australia books, Inhaltsangabe:Abstract: This paper is about linguistic imperialism and linguistic ecology in respect of the indigenous languages of Australia. The linguistic complexities in Australia are immense, as are the fields of research of linguistic imperialism and linguistic ecology. Neither is the research in the fields mentioned above terminated nor has the development in Australia reached an end. As a result, the paper is only able to provide a snapshot. The first chapter serves as an introduction. The reader should familiarize her-/ himself with the history and culture of a people, which is unique and distinct from any other civilization. It refers to the initial settlement of the Australian continent, as well as it touches in short specific traits of Aboriginal culture. Answers are provided to questions like, 'What is language?', 'What are the characteristics of Aboriginal languages and Aboriginal English?' Linguistic imperialism will be discussed in chapter two. From what point on can a relationship between any given subjects be called, in its widest meaning, imperialistic? The chapter refers to Galtung (1980), whose observations are still valid today and gives a historical overview of the rise of the English language from a European Germanic language spoken on the British Islands to a global language, especially focusing on the development in the 19th and 20th century. Linguistic ecology is a rather new field of research in linguistics. Chapter three reflects on a research orientation which developed in the 1960s and 1970s due to Haugen, who gave the term ecology a linguistic meaning. It tries to show the parallels between biodiversity and cultural/ linguistic diversity and why it has become so important to be aware that not only plants and animals are seriously endangered and need special protection, but also languages. Additionally, other fields of interest of language ecology are introduced in the chapter. The last chapter deals with the impact European settlement had on indigenous language variety, and the problems contemporary Australian society is confronted with. Australia's language policy will not only be outlined in regard of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander's native tongue, but also in regard of community languages. Which possibilities has the Australian government to deal with the problem and which language maintenance efforts have been called into action so far? Inhaltsverzeichnis:Table of [...]
