Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies

Decolonizing Disability, Indigeneity, and Poetic Methods

Hanging Out in Australia

Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies (2013), 7, (2), 175–193.

Abstract

The article witnesses encounters in Australia, many centered in Aboriginal Australian contexts, and asks what arts-based research methods can offer to intercultural contact. It offers a meditation on decolonizing methodologies and the use of literary forms by a white Western subject in disability culture. The argument focuses on productive unknowability, on finding machines that respectfully align research methods and cultural production at the site of encounter.
