Associate Professor Gracelyn Smallwood, James Cook University

In this seminar, based on her PhD thesis, Associate Professor Smallwood will present a defence of what is popularly known as the ‘human rights agenda’ in Indigenous affairs, through the prism of the ‘non-wellbeing’ of Indigenous Australians and her family’s personal narrative. She will engage with the dominant intellectual commentary of figures such as Noel Pearson, Peter Sutton, Gary Johns and Keith Windschuttle, whom she argues ‘have colonised what passes for common sense in mainstream Australia’.
