Area of study
Julie Andrews teaches the first year subject ABS1IIA: Introduction to Indigenous Australia. This course is basically a very broad introduction to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues. It is useful for those wanting to know more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples or building upon what they may already know. It gives the student an opportunity to explore the many topics that are associated with Aboriginal Australia. Julie is also a cultural awareness teacher to University staff members under the Equity & Staff Development Program.

‘Bringing Up Our Children’ – Aboriginal socialisation of Yorta Yorta children.One of my current research projects is on civility and social relations in Goa (India) and in Malaysia. It is focused on two inter-related questions: how people living in multiethnic societies manage cultural diversity in ways that avert and avoid tensions and conflict and what sort of strategies people in these societies employ to sustain peaceful, harmonious, and civil social relations with others they perceive to be different?
