Aboriginal Peoples and the media – Option 4
An Aboriginal Studies where students explore the key role that the media plays in today’s society, in particular its impact on a range of non-Aboriginal peoples’ perceptions of Aboriginal Peoples, cultures and contemporary issues.
The presentation of Aboriginal Peoples and cultural images from pre-invasion to today are investigated and compared. Students also explore the role Aboriginal communities and individuals play in the media as advocates for themselves and the community, and the importance of Aboriginal-controlled media outlets as vehicles for self-determination.
