Decolonial and Indigenous studies

Decolonial and Indigenous studies deals with questions of importance to Indigenous peoples in Australia, the Pacific, and across the globe. Scholars in this group engage in transdisciplinary research and teaching that privileges Indigenous voices and ontological perspectives. We use critical, participatory and decolonising methodologies to conduct research and applied work on:

  • Indigenous land rights and self-determination;
  • Decolonisation;
  • Place and belonging;
  • Space and identity; and
  • Climate change.

Responding to historical legacies of damaging research practices on Indigenous peoples, both in Australia and elsewhere, we are committed to the practice of ethical, reciprocal engagements with Indigenous peoples.

Our academics teach subjects within the Master of Environmental Management and Development degree program and the Master of Applied Anthropology and Participatory Development (MAAPD).
