Evelyn Araluen: Legacy Books

In this minisode from FWF 2018 Legacy Books, Evelyn Araluen talks about the books that shaped her feminism and her writing, with a focus on Aileen Moreton-Robinson’s Talkin’ up to the White Woman and Natalie Harkin’s The Poetics of (Re)Mapping the Archives: Memory in the Blood.

Evelyn says: ‘Indigeneaity is not just a part of my identity politics, it is actually foundational. It is the blood memory of my entire being and everything must come from that… Colonisation has impacted the languages we have to talk about gender… So I need feminism to address that.’
