“Don’t You Have Enough Grief?”: Divergent Experiences of Jewish-Aboriginal Women in Australia

“Don’t You Have Enough Grief?”: Divergent Experiences of Jewish-Aboriginal Women in Australia This article explores the narratives of three Aboriginal women who also identity as Jewish. Despite their shared identities, the way they reflected on both their Aboriginality and Jewishness revealed that understandings of dual community identities are experienced in different, and sometimes conflicting, ways. Drawing on the notion of agency in the everyday, I approach the experiences of these women in terms of their navigation of identity and community. In doing so, I contribute to the growing body of literature surrounding lateral connections between minority communities in Australia. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Australian Studies Taylor & Francis

Abstract

This article explores the narratives of three Aboriginal women who also identity as Jewish. Despite their shared identities, the way they reflected on both their Aboriginality and Jewishness revealed that understandings of dual community identities are experienced in different, and sometimes conflicting, ways. Drawing on the notion of agency in the everyday, I approach the experiences of these women in terms of their navigation of identity and community. In doing so, I contribute to the growing body of literature surrounding lateral connections between minority communities in Australia.
