Black Wars and White Settlement: the Conflict over Space in the Australian Commemorative Landscape

Abstract : The Australian commemorative landscape has long been dominated by memorials to white settlement of the continent and their associated historical narratives of discovery, exploration, pioneering and the extra-territorial war memory of Anzac. This article considers how Indigenous narratives were marginalized or suppressed in the construction of that landscape and it examines, from geo-historiographical and political perspectives, the struggle over commemorative space and the contemporary movement to recover and reinscribe social memories of the Frontier or Black Wars in Australia’s geography of remembrance.
