Digital technology is rapidly changing the transmission of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ history and contemporary culture; both within Indigenous communities and for settler Australia.
Presenting the work of researchers engaged with the influence of digital technologies on Indigenous futures in Australia, this seminar series will interrogate questions of cultural expression, activism, relationality, sovereignty, and decolonisation within the digital world.
