Contested Knowledges is primarily concerned with issues of knowledge production and their relations to the management of resources in northern Australia. The aim of the unit is to introduce you to issues of knowledge and the philosophies relating to its production, and to investigate the impact these ideas may have on the way we approach the management of resources, particularly in different cultural contexts. The unit emphasises the way in which knowledge is contingent upon our social and cultural histories and how an awareness of this may affect the ways in which people operate to develop, manage and maintain resources in contexts where different cultural and historical contexts are involved.
