Title: "You are writing a gospel...":"Life Writing" and the Lives of Jim Page and Rebecca Forbes in the Adnyamathanha Community. [abstract].
Authors: Spencer, Tracy
Keywords: research
Issue Date: 2006
Abstract: This paper seeks to explore the construction of an hybrid life-writing text similar to the genre of ‘gospel’ and incorporating ‘parable’. The text produced for the project ‘White Lives in a Black Community: the lives of Jim Page and Rebecca Forbes in the Adnyamathanha community’ seeks to narrate historic lives, through a postmodern and postcolonial hybrid text, in order to engage the contemporary reader in a critical response to Indigenous – non-Indigenous relationships in Australia.
