About The Author

Nakata, a Torres Strait Islander academic, casts a critical gaze on the 1890s Cambridge Expedition researchers to the Torres Strait. He meticulously analyses the linguistic, psychological, anthropological and other scientific projects of the expedition, and offers an astute critique of their research methods and interpretations.

Nakata’s is the first such analysis from a Torres Strait Islander position and he draws eloquently from his own struggle to break free from imposed definitions. In doing so, he explores the often uneasy tension between being who you are and who you have been told you are.
