Contemporary Monsters In Central Australia
Tuesday, July 9, 2019 - 19:00
Based on fieldwork with the Warlpiri people of Central Australia, I will discuss the significance to them of monsters such as kurdaitcha (humanoid killers with superhuman strength and powers) and pangkarlangu (giant hairy cannibals). I will argue that behind these supernatural monsters which haunt the Warlpiri are the realities of neo-colonial violence and the threat of extinction.
