Encounters with Indigeneity
For four decades Jeremy Beckett has shone a light on previously marginalised fields of life. While the many went in search of 'traditional culture?, Beckett was fascinated to learn how people who often lacked wider recognition of their Aboriginality went about their lives. In the process he changed our understandings of those people and highlighted the issues they confronted. He has enriched our appreciation of the diversity of Indigenous identities and experiences. He was an expert witness leading up to the Mabo decision, and has brought Australian Indigenous studies into a world framework. His work continues to be influential to many: those who revisit his ideas here; and those who are newer to his work.

The Two Rainbow Serpents Travelling
The 'Corner Country', where Queensland, South Australia and New South Wales now converge, was in Aboriginal tradition crisscrossed by the tracks of the mura, ancestral beings, who named the country as they travelled, linking place to language. Reproduced here is the story of the two Ngatyi, Rainbow Serpents, who travelled from the Paroo to the Flinders Ranges and back as far as Yancannia Creek, where their deep underground channels linked them back to the Paroo. Jeremy Beckett recorded these stories from George Dutton and Alf Barlow in 1957. Luise Hercus, who has worked on the languages in the area for many years, has collaborated with Jeremy Beckett to analyse the names and identify the places.

Before It's Too Late
"The immediate post war period ushered in a number of changes which affected the political and social life of Australians, especially Aboriginal Australians, against a backdrop of increased demands for self-government and independence in African and Southeast Asian colonies, the development of human rights conventions and United Nations sponsored campaigns against racism and the like." Anthropologists who worked in Australia between 1950 and 1970 discuss their work during this period.

An Appreciation of Difference
WEH Stanner was a public intellectual whose work reached beyond the walls of the academy, and he remains a highly significant figure in Aboriginal affairs and Australian anthropology. Educated by Radcliffe-Brown in Sydney and Malinowski in London, he undertook anthropological work in Australia, Africa and the Pacific. Stanner contributed much to public understandings of the Dreaming and the significance of Aboriginal religion. His 1968 broadcast lectures, After the Dreaming, continue to be among the most widely quoted works in the field of Aboriginal studies. He also produced some exceptionally evocative biographical portraits of Aboriginal people. Stanner's writings on post-colonial development and assimilation policy urged an appreciation of Indigenous people's distinctive world views and aspirations. Hinkson and Beckett have drawn together some of Australia's leading academics working in Aboriginal studies to provide an historical and analytical context for Stanner's work, as well as demonstrating the continuing relevance of his writings in the contested field of Aboriginal affairs.
