Abstract

This chapter focusses on one particular aspect of racism: the ways in which racialized criminality is both constructed and reproduced in the media. I focus specifically on racialized criminality and Indigenous peoples in Australia. The chapter takes a broad approach to media and includes mainstream media outlets (both print and television) and other media forms including social media and film. It looks at both non-Indigenous and Indigenous media, the latter being particularly important in understanding Indigenous resistance and challenges to mainstream representations.

Keywords: Indingeous people, racism, media
