Anthropology Seminar presented by Suzanne Ingram: Homo-Indigene: an analysis of the reshaping of Aboriginality in contemporary Australia

Abstract

Suzanne’s research on health communication has found the health space increasingly populated by people who were ‘white’ until they ‘discovered’ a distant Aboriginal ancestor. Introducing her concept of the homo indigene, she will explain the expression ‘box-tickers’ and demonstrate the processes through which they become social actors of a specific kind, how they operate in our geopolitical spaces and the implications of this cohort for Aboriginal peoples. Suzanne will argue that the space in which this is unfolding opens up violences, distortions and misshaping of Aboriginal personhood as new stages are created on which Aboriginality is performed.

About the Speaker

Suzanne Ingram is an Aboriginal woman of the Wiradjuri. Her research is focused on health communication and the Aboriginal person. Suzanne applies a background in theatre and communications practice to data analyses in considering violence against Aboriginal women and children, child development, housing and urbanisation as critical health issues. Suzanne is undertaking her PhD at the Department of Anthropology at the University of Sydney.
