Finding a space to make an impact within the contemporary world
Fredericks, Bronwyn & Croft, Pamela (2008) Finding a space to make an impact within the contemporary world. Studies in Learning, Evaluation, Innovation and Development, 5(1), pp. 1-12.
Indigenous peoples have generally been the objects of the research as has Indigenous art, dance, stories, artefacts, music and history. This is also the experience of Indigenous peoples in other parts of the world. Collectively Indigenous people are said to be the "most researched people in the world" (Smith, 1999, p.3). As researchers, Indigenous people are relatively new travellers. This paper will explore using first person narrative the issues experienced by two of these new travellers. Within this paper Bronwyn Fredericks and Pamela Croft share part of their journey which was driven by process and a commitment to the broader Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander political struggle.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
