Representations of Indigenous Australians in the Mainstream News Media

By Clemence Due, Damien W Riggs

Overview

40_off

Written for both students and established researchers, Representations of Indigenous Australians in the Mainstream News Media introduces critical discourse analysis as an approach for examining the pervasive nature of stereotypes about Indigenous people in the media.

Examining such diverse topics as native title, the History Wars, the Northern Territory Intervention, sexual abuse in Indigenous communities, gang violence, and the Apology to Indigenous Australians, the book provides practical ways to identify the rhetorical effects of particular media representations. In so doing, the book provides not only a snapshot of the ways in which Indigenous Australians are currently represented in the Australian news media, but also functions as a guide for conducting discourse analysis, and for using a critical approach to both identifying and challenging stereotypes.

As a counter to negative representations of Indigenous Australians, the book also offers a reflexive examination of the role of the news media, and considers ways in which issues concerning Indigenous Australians could be better dealt with within the mainstream media, together with discussing the role of Indigenous-run media in Australia.
