dc.description.abstract

An increasing number of Australian indigenous autobiographies have been collaborations between their subject speakers, an often non-indigenous facilitator and, in one case, an initiating publisher. Most of these books are based on oral reminiscence, recorded and initially edited by the non-indigenous collaborator in consultation with the subject, a contact that is maintained while the book goes through the publication process. The characteristics of this genre are identified in the paper, along with the processes involved in creating, editing and publishing such texts. The role of the publisher in the origination and production of these works is also examined.
