In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
Despite the vast research by ethnographers and anthropologists on the Torres Strait Islands and Islanders, there is little that follows a holistic line that is shaped by Island people themselves. Guided by the community of Saibai Island, this research develops a model for a respectful and meaningful approach to research, and for connecting past performance practices with new performance methodologies.
