Made to Matter analyses the stories of the Stolen Generation's white fathers, building on and complicating their role in this history.
Fiona Probyn-Rapsey is a professor in the School of Humanities and Social Inquiry at the University of Wollongong.
'It is rare to come across studies of important themes in the context of a national culture, such as the Australian, and think, why has this not been examined properly before? Fiona Probyn-Rapsey's Made to Matter. White Fathers, Stolen Generations represents such a study ... Made to Matter is an important book not least because it draws attention to an overlooked aspect of twentieth-century outback contact-zone history.'-- Lars Jensen * Journal of the European Association for Studies of Australia (JEASA), Vol.6 No.1, 2015. *
'In openly analysing the 'Great Australian silence' and 'cults of disremembering' that surround sexual intimacy between white Australians and Aboriginal people, Made to Matter breaches the uncomfortable reality of colonial history.'-- Valerie Cooms * Cultural Studies Review *
