Taking Our Place

Taking Our Place explores the creation, in 1975, of the Aboriginal Teachers Aides program which as Linda Burney says, ‘was a groundbreaking program, [as] it opened up universities for Aboriginal people’. Even though this program was ultimately absorbed into the TAFE system, its success provided the catalyst for the creation of the Aboriginal Education Centre (AEC), renamed the Koori Centre in 1992. Today, with its own research and teaching capability the Koori Centre is crucial in offering support to an increasing number of Indigenous students undertaking mainstream degrees at the university. It also provides a focal point for non-Indigenous students wishing to broaden their knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal history and culture.

Threads was developed as a practical component of the University’s new Masters of Publishing program. Essays, short stories and poetry were submitted to the student editorial team, who selected, edited, typeset and designed the book. Dr Elizabeth Webby, who attended the launch, remarked that she was impressed with the quality of the writing.
