Assessment Task:
Governing Aboriginal People - Personal Testimonies - Academic study - Case Study - Assessment Answer

QUESTION 1.    

How do personal testimonies contribute to our understanding of a historical period or event? Are they simply a primary source, or are they too personal to play an important role? 
Explanation
In this question, the terms ‘personal testimonies’ and ‘personal history’ refer to memoirs, autobiographies and oral histories. You must discuss at least one example in detail, indicating that you are familiar with the work, not what other people have said about it.
 

Approach
Regardless of what kind of personal testimony you base your answer on, you will need to make a comparison between them and other kinds of historical knowledge. So it’s best to choose something you are already a bit familiar with, so that you can comment on the reliability of your personal testimony. For example, if you choose one of the Holocaust memoirs, you will need to explain what it offers that complements an academic study of the Holocaust. If you choose the Marnie Kennedy memoir mentioned below, you will need to indicate some familiarity with Australian policies governing Aboriginal people in the twentieth century.  Three memoirs available in the Reserve section of your campus Library are:
•    Marnie Kennedy, Born a half caste. Canberra: Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies, 1985/1990.
•    Art Spigelman, The Complete Maus(part is extracted for Week 10’s reading) 
•    Elie Wiesel, Night (a Holocaust memoir) 
There are many more personal testimonies around, and you are free to go beyond this list. As long as the work can be compared to secondary historical information, there are really no limits. Please do check if there is any doubt about the suitability of your choice.
