Botany Bay: Where Histories Meet

By Maria Nugent | Go to book overview

NOTES
1
Paul Carter used The Road to Botany Bay as the title for his ground- breaking book on spatial history. Carter's work has influenced my study of Botany Bay in terms of thinking about how place is culturally pro- duced through language. In my study, I wanted to show how that cultural process works on the ground and so I have begun it by overlay- ing Carter's now well-known metaphor to an actual road to Botany Bay.

Others involved in the work were Gloria Ardler, Beryl Beller, Clara Mason, Lee-Anne Mason, Sharon Williams and Leslie Davison. In 1990 they formed the Burraga Aboriginal History and Writing Group.

My interest in Aboriginal people's history-making is inspired by and draws upon the work of historians and anthropologists Deborah Bird Rose, Jeremy Beckett, Diane Barwick, Gillian Cowlishaw, Bain Attwood and Heather Goodall, who have shown how the act of telling stories about the past is a vital resource for Aboriginal people in producing new forms of identity in the colonial context, as well as critical, more gener- ally, to shaping relations between various settler communities and colonised people in the post-1770 period. See especially: Deborah Bird Rose, `Remembrance', Aboriginal History, vol. 13, nos 1—2, 1989, pp. 135—48; Jeremy Beckett, `Walter Newton's history of the world—or Australia', American Ethnologist, vol. 20, no. 4, 1993, pp. 675—95; Jeremy Beckett (ed.), Past and Present: The Construction of Aboriginality, Aborig- inal Studies Press, Canberra, 1988, especially J. Beckett, `The past in the present; the present in the past: Constructing a national Aboriginality', K. Maddock, `Myth, history and a sense of oneself ' and L. Coltheart, `The moment of Aboriginal history'; Barry Morris, `Making histories/ living history', Social Analysis, no. 27, April 1990, pp. 83—92; Gillian Cowlishaw, Blackfellas, Whitefellas, and the Hidden Injuries of Race, Black- well Publishers, Malden, 2004; Bain Attwood and Fiona Magowan (eds), Telling Stories: Indigenous History and Memory in Australia and New Zealand, Allen & Unwin, Sydney, 2001; Bain Attwood (ed.), In the Age of Mabo: History, Aborigines and Australia, Allen & Unwin, Sydney, 1996; Heather Goodall, `The whole truth and nothing but ...': Some inter- actions of western law, Aboriginal history and community memory', in
