Skin Deep: Settler Impressions of Aboriginal Women


526 pages, Paperback, Some B/W photographs,

Skin Deep looks at the preoccupations of European-Australians in their encounters with Aboriginal women and the tropes, types and perceptions that seeped into everyday settler-colonial thinking. Early erroneous and uninformed accounts of Aboriginal women and culture were repeated throughout various print forms and imagery, both in Australia and in Europe, with names, dates and locations erased so that individual women came to be anonymised as ‘gins’ and ‘lubras’.
