RMIT Publishing creates a single platform for Indigenous worldviews
In collaboration with a number of authoritative organisations, RMIT Publishing has brought together for the first time a broad range of Indigenous research resources that span Indigenous traditions from around the world. The Informit Indigenous Collection (IIC) is a unique enabling tool for Indigenous research, providing a single forum through which to engage in genuinely comparative analyses of Indigenous issues on a global scale.
IIC addresses both contemporary and historical issues within Indigenous studies. The IIC multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary framework encompasses anthropology, community development, cultural studies, economics, education, health, history, human geography, law and land rights, literature, politics and policy making, (post)colonial studies, psychology, race studies, sociology and visual and performing arts.
IIC gives access to emergent and ground breaking research within the global community offering scope for critical international engagement and debate. With material from Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, New Zealand, North America and The Pacific, which normally is not easily located in standard resources, IIC is a platform for Indigenous worldviews.
The relevance and quality of all the content in the Informit Indigenous Collection is secured by peak professional bodies and key partners such as Aboriginal Studies Press, Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal, University of Queensland, Aboriginal Inc., Nga Pae o te Maramatanga, African Studies Association of Australasia and the Pacific, Australian Archaeological Association, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit, ACER Press, Australian Academic Press, Fiji Institute of Applied Studies, Center of World Indigenous Studies, University of Waikato, Polynesian Society, Ateneo de Manila University Press, Philippine Studies Association of Australia, Association for the Publication of Indonesian and Malaysian Studies and many more.
RMIT Publishing believes this collection will benefit a great variety of professionals and researchers involved with Indigenous issues and that it will increase comparative analyses of Indigenous issues on a global scale.
