The Aboriginal Medium: Negotiating the Caesura of Exchange
McNamara, Andrew E. (2001) The Aboriginal Medium: Negotiating the Caesura of Exchange. In de Vries, Hent & Weber, Samuel (Eds.) Religion and Media. Stanford University Press, pp. 487-513.
Examines the competing, vexed debates about Aboriginal art and culture. In particular it examines the work of Eric Michaels on the issue of Aboriginal media. This paper argues that Michaels treats medium in a different manner in regard to indigenous electronic media than he does with indigenous art. It is actually the latter treatment, the issue of medium in art, that is more complex and more sustaining. The paper examines the significance of this approach to medium for dealing with the quandaries of immanence and difference in relation to Aboriginal culture as a whole.

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.
