This book explores the curriculum theorizing of Black women, as well as their historical and contemporary contributions to the always-evolving complicated conversation that is Curriculum Studies. It serves as an opportunity to begin a dialogue of revision and reconciliation and offers a vision for the transformation of academia’s relationship with black women as students, teachers, and theorizers. Taking the perennial silencing of Black women’s voices in academia as its impetus, the book explains how even fields like Curriculum Studies – where scholars have worked to challenge hegemony, injustice, and silence within the larger discipline of education – have struggled to identify an intellectual tradition marked by the Black, female subjectivity. This epistemic amnesia is an ongoing reminder of the strength of what bell hooks calls "imperialist white supremacist capitalist patriarchy", and the ways in which even the most critical spaces fail to recognize the contributions and even the very existence of Black women. Seeking to redress this balance, this book engages the curricular lives of Black women and girls epistemologically, bodily, experientially, and publicly. Providing a clarion call for fellow educators to remain reflexive and committed to emancipatory aims, this book will be of interest to researchers seeking an exploration of critical voices from nondominant identities, perspectives, and concerns. This book was originally published as a special issue of Gender and Education.

The authors draw upon a rich life history archive of letters, diaries, personal photographs and oral history interviews with former migrants, including those who settled in Australia and those who returned to Britain. They offer original interpretations of key historical themes, including motivations for emigration; gender relations and the family dynamics of migration; the 'very familiar and awfully strange' confrontation with the new world; the anguish of homesickness and return; and the personal and national identities of both settlers and returnees, fifty years on. --book cover.

In 1976, Niall's family emigrated to Australia, as part of the £10 Pom scheme. He lived there for 3 years, moving from Brisbane to Perth in a souped-up station wagon. 30 years later, he returned to retrace his steps; this is a memoir, travelogue, rant, paean, elegy, and perhaps the closest thing to an autoibiography that Niall will ever write.

Don't panic - I'm Islamic! Amal is a 16-year-old Melbourne teen with all the usual obsessions about boys, chocolate and Cosmo magazine. She's also a Muslim, struggling to honour the Islamic faith in a society that doesn't understand it. The story of her decision to "shawl up" is funny, surprising and touching by turns.

A Man s Got to Have a Hobby

We had a school band at Humpybong and they played 'God Save the Queen' after the Lord's Prayer at each assembly. Even after 'Advance Australia Fair' was deemed our national song, the band continued to play 'God Save The Queen'.

William McInnes' bestselling memoir, A Man's Got To Have A Hobby, takes us back to the long summer holidays of the 1960s and 70s, and the last of the baby-boomer childhoods. William writes with humour and affection about his family, and especially his mum and dad, who talked to the TV set and enjoyed life in their house near the bay. William McInnes is a talented writer and a natural storyteller. A tail-end baby boomer, he recalls summer holidays that seemed to go on forever, when he and his mates would walk down to fish in the bay; a time when the Aussie battler stood as the local Labor candidate and looked out for his mates; and a time when the whole family would rush into the lounge room to watch a new commercial on TV. He writes about his father - a strong character who talks to the furniture, dances with William's mother in the kitchen, and spends his free time fixing up the house and doing the best for his family. In William's writing you can hear his father speaking and listen to his mother singing. This is a book about people who aren't famous but should be. It's about cane toads and families, love and hope and fear, laughter, death and life. Most of all, it is a realistic, down-to-earth book by a man who had a great time growing up. His warmth and humour come through on every page. This Australian memoir tells of a time that will be familiar to many readers and a delight for all. 'McInnes applies a deft touch to a swag of recollections, shaping a yarn that should be listed with the national treasures' - The Courier Mail 'This will make you laugh till you cry' - The Age 'A perfect balance between humour, humility, seriousness and light, laughter and tears' - Sunday Telegraph

South Australia and Federation presents a lively and lucid account of what was happening in South Australia at a vital turning point in its history. The federation era was the highwater mark of South Australian's interaction with people in the rest of Australia. Elected representatives of the central colony/state played a key role in creating and shaping the new Australian nation in its formative years. Peter Howell tells this story in the context of fresh examination of the ways in which South Australians were developing their own community.
