Australian Aboriginal Dreaming Stories: A Chronological Bibliography Of Published Works 1789-1991, Michael K. Organ Sep 1994

Australian Aboriginal Dreaming Stories: A Chronological Bibliography Of Published Works 1789-1991, Michael K. Organ

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

The bibliography lists published works relating to Aboriginal stories which have been labelled by non-Aboriginal Australians with a variety of terms: myths or mythology, legends, fairy tales, superstitions, fables, traditions, stories, dreamtime stories, narratives or even ghost stories. Preference is now given to the use of the term ‘dreaming stories’. For a discussion of the various definitions and classifications of such material by Australian anthropologists and ethnologists refer Hiatt (1975). Interpretation by local and overseas researchers and academics has not been addressed in detail within this bibliography as such a topic covers a vast field, but some such items have ...


A Conspiracy Of Silence - The Nsw National Parks And Wildlife Service And Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Sites, Michael K. Organ Apr 1994

A Conspiracy Of Silence - The Nsw National Parks And Wildlife Service And Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Sites, Michael K. Organ

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

The New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service (NP&WS), under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974 (NSW) ('the Act'), is responsible for the 'care, control. and management' of Aboriginal cultural hentage sites (middens, burial sites, rock art sites, etc.) throughout NSW.2 Section 90 of the Act states that it is an offence to destroy, deface or disturb an Aboriginal site, and that consent to do so must be sought from the Director of the Service. It is questionable not only whether it is appropriate that the Service should wield such power, but also if it is ...


Falling Everywhere: Postmodern Politics And American Cultural Mythologies, Anthony Ashbolt Jan 1994

Falling Everywhere: Postmodern Politics And American Cultural Mythologies, Anthony Ashbolt

Faculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)

History repeats itself, endlessly and sometimes tiresomely. Numerous writers and scholars have worried about the divisions - social, political and cultural - which began permeating American society in the 1960s. The unravelling of America, the coming apart of America, became familiar refrains. During the 'sixties itself, Daniel Boorstin's new left barbarians were at the gate threatening the very genius of American politics which Boorstin had postulated in the previous decade. This genius, itself a cousin of American exceptionalism, revolved around the erosion of ideological division, and the lack of vigorous difference within the American polity. Rather than this producing a bland ...

Conrad Martens : Journal Of A Voyage From England To Australia Aboard Hms Beagle And Hms Hyacinth 1833-35, Michael K. Organ

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

Conrad Martens (1801-78) is widely regarded as Australia's foremost watercolourist of the colonial period, having produced a large body of work whilst resident in New South Wales between 1835-78. His journal of a voyage from England to Australia during 1833-35 aboard HMS Beagle with Charles Darwin and HMS Hyacinth was for a long period catalogued as an `Anonymous Journal of a Voyage on board H.M.S. Hyacinth' in the collection of the Mitchell Library, Sydney (ML A429). However in 1993 it was identified as by Conrad Martens. This was a significant find as it also contained an account ...

Arthur Cousins 1866-1960, Michael K. Organ Jan 1994

Arthur Cousins 1866-1960, Michael K. Organ

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

He was that "rara avis" in Australian historiography, the devoted local historian who has a realisation of the broader implications of regional development. So wrote Sydney University Archivist D.S. Macmillan in an obituary notice published in the October 1960 number of the Union Recorder, commemorating the death of Arthur Cousins on Wednesday, 17 August, at his Cremone residence, aged 94 years. Though having known him for only a brief period at the end of a long life, Macmillan had developed a degree of admiration and respect for this elderly gentleman, who, along with G.E. Hall and others, had ...

Early Land Settlement In Illawarra 1804-1861, Benjamin Lindsay, Michael K. Organ, A. P. Doyle

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

The writer of this story was born in Illawarra over 76 years ago [c1857], and during his childhood and youth he shared in the experiences and struggles of the pioneer settlers in that rich and beautiful portion of the State. In this story he has attempted to give a detailed account of the manner in which the Crown Lands of Illawarra were disposed of, for the information of all who are interested in matters pertaining to Illawarra, and, more particularly, the large body of farmers now occupying those lands, many of whom are descendants of the pioneers who came from ...

The Menzies Family Of Minamurra House, Jamberoo, Michael K. Organ, Arthur Cousins

Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) - Papers

In January 1839 a young Scottish couple – Dr. Robert Menzies and his recent bride Margaret (nee Tindell) - arrived in Sydney aboard the Earl Durham. Like so many other free immigrants of the time, they had journeyed to New South Wales with the intention of settling on a farm and making a future for themselves and their family there. They had high hopes of perhaps even acquiring a small fortune within a decade or so, selling up at a profit, and retiring to their beloved family and friends back home in Scotland. However, such was not to be the fate of ...
