Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter explores an Aboriginal theory of affect as it provides the basis for an intercultural ethics of relationship between the Yolŋu and balanda (European or non-Aboriginal) worlds. It features extracts adapted from the book, Phone & Spear: A Yuta Anthropology (Goldsmiths Press, 2019) co-authored by Miyarrka Media, a media and arts collective based in the Yolŋu Aboriginal community of Gapuwiyak in East Arnhem Land Australia’s Northern Territory. Three members of the collective, Paul Gurrumuruwy, Enid Guruŋulmiwuy and Jennifer Deger, lay out their approach to creating a new, or yuta, anthropology.
