Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,3, University of Wuppertal, course: S: Australian Life Writing, 3 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The topic of my seminar work is “Aboriginality in Sally Morgan’sMy Place“.In order to write about Aboriginality in this specific case it is necessary and very important to first define this term.What do we understand by ́Aboriginality`? Where does the word ́Aboriginal` come from and who/what is Aboriginal? What problem is there about identity? What was the Aboriginal past like? Only when we have a clear concept of these terms and have a general idea about the context we can move on to the actual topic of this work, namely to analyse Sally Morgan’s (auto)biography and find out which of the aspects occur in her book and of what importance they are. Therefore the main part of this work is subdivided into two parts: Firstly the definition of the central terms and a short historical background and secondly the analysis of the primary literature with regard to the mentioned points. Finally I will sum up the results of my research in a short conclusion.
