Abstract

The call for this issue outlined several possible meanings of “trans- parency”, as signaled by the use of its plural form in the title. Here, I come to terms with this concept as a possible modeling device or archetype reflecting the ways in which Indigenous cultural and political representation has been experienced, defined or, more frequently, denied in Australian colonial and post-colonial history. Before venturing into a closer examination of the notion of trans- parency in this specific context, it seems necessary to explore it in theoretical terms, considering how complex, subtle, and pliable this concept is.These preliminary considerations will hopefully show how “transparency” fits the historical and localized perspective that I have chosen, i.e., how it can be applied to Australian history and culture.
