Notes: Acknowledgments: Work on this book, which has been developed from my thesis, was made possible by a postdoctoral fellowship funded by an ARC Linkage grant (LP110200803) between The Australian National University, the Central Land Council and the Strehlow Research Centre titled, ‘Rescuing Carl Strehlow’s indigenous cultural heritage legacy: the neglected German tradition of Arandic ethnography’. Includes bibliographical references (pages 269-304) and index.
Description / Abstract: "The main aim of this book is to make a contribution to overcoming the longstanding omission of the role of the German humanistic tradition, represented by Carl Strehlow, in Australian anthropology and intellectual history. The German missionary Carl Strehlow had a deep ethnographic interest in Aboriginal Australian songs, cosmology and social life which he documented in his seven volume work, Die Aranda- und Loritja-Stämme in Zentral-Australien (1907–1920) at the beginning of the twentieth century. This immensely rich corpus, based on a lifetime on the central Australian frontier, is barely known in the English-speaking world and is the last major classic ethnographic corpus on central Australian cultures that is to be discovered and evaluated in the English speaking world. I address with this book a long neglected research problem of the histories of Australian anthropology and intellectual history that have been almost purely Anglophone in their orientation so that untranslated work has been ignored. It is the first step towards an account of how this other anthropological tradition informed Carl Strehlow’s work and highlights the key elements of his ethnography and brilliant scholarship"--Page 8.
