Abstract

Working research together with Aboriginal knowledge holders on Aboriginal land brings multiple often incommensurable knowledge traditions together. Science and Technology Studies (STS) is a field of research that unpicks the assumptions embedded in Western knowledge traditions, and provides resources for new forms of situated interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary research work.

The articles in this collection came from a set of experiences engaging with STS theory and practices. While many of the articles in the present collection do not focus on science or technology, the analytic tools of STS are focused on the widely variable epistemic practices and cultures that thrive in northern Australia.
