[Extract] At its core, this Forum piece takes issue with Bruce Pascoe’s use of culture history to present his version of the history of Australia in his highly acclaimed book Dark Emu, a view that has been echoed by various other scholars (see for example Griffiths 2019; Sutton and Walshe 2021). Specifically, the authors argue that the high value that Pascoe places on technological and economic complexity ‘perpetuates narratives that oppress difference’, erasing the diversity of Indigenous Australians.
