I’ve blurbed about the long-handled “Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies”:http://www.aiatsis.gov.au/ (AIATSIS to its friends) and their extremely prolific “Aboriginal Studies Press”:http://www.aiatsis.gov.au/aboriginal_studies_press in the past. One thing well worth checking out on their site is a cool “interactive map of aboriginal ethnic groups”:http://www.aiatsis.gov.au/aboriginal_studies_press/aboriginal_wall_map/map_page.
Most of my research is about how problematic maps which divide aboriginal identities and territorial claims into externally-bounded, internally homogenous “billiard ball” type units a la Eric Wolf can be. But I’m not an aboriginal expert, so what do I know about Australia? Plus also the map is really cool.
