On white possession and the bordered state as sites of settler colonial practice: Fiona Nicoll, ‘Interrupting White Possession and Unsettling State Borders: Expanding Frontiers of Critical Indigenous Studies’, International Journal of Critical Indigenous Studies, 8, 1, 2015, pp. 47-59
Excerpt: The White Possessive showcases the unique intellectual contribution of Aileen Moreton-Robinson, both within Australia and internationally. Prising apart concepts of race, ethnicity and cultural difference, her book makes visible and accountable the patriarchal white subject of possession that subtends them. Mohawk Interruptus is a rigorous ethnographic account of the intra-subjective and inter-subjective dimensions of academic disciplines and political practices that produce and police the ‘authenticity’ of Indigenous people.
