This Pearson Original edition is published for Queensland University of Technology.

Introductory Indigenous Studies in Education: Reflection and the importance of knowing is written specifically for university students in critical Indigenous studies programs.  This 2nd edition takes into account relevant recent developments and includes revised versions of some of the previous chapters and some new chapters.

This book intends to add to conversations about the place of Indigenous peoples in Australian society as a means of exploring Australian society itself.  The issues considered about the representations of Indigenous peoples, our knowledge and the multi-dimensionality of our intersected history are relevant to a much broader societal context.

The text does more than provide 'information'.  Rather, it seeks to explore the conflict, compromise and negotiation that can emerge when previously disconnected ways of knowing ourselves are re-fashioned within a space where the 'stories' of Indigenous peoples are given authority where previously they were absent.

As such, this book is concerned with persuading pre-service teachers to develop their own ideas of what Indigenous studies means to their work, and to consider their role as teachers in this context.

Biography

Jean Phillips is a Murri woman (Wakka Wakka) from south east Queensland. Originally trained as a primary school teacher, she now researches and teaches in Indigenous education. Her PhD examines how resistance was articulated, rationalised and managed by non-Indigenous students in compulsory Indigenous studies. She is particularly interested in the interaction between Indigenous knowledge systems and western colonial traditions particularly with regard to colonial identity construction and intellectual authority, pedagogy and spirituality.

Although born in Toronto, Canada, Jo Lampert has been living in Queensland for the past 17 years. For most of this time, she has been working in Indigenous education and involved in teaching, research and curriculum development. Currently she is a researcher and teacher in the School of Cultural and Language Studies at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane. She was involved in the development and teaching of a compulsory Indigenous Education unit within the Faculty of Education there. She has an ongoing commitment to embedding Indigenous perspectives throughout the curriculum.
