Beyond the Dream
Affective ethnography of the resilience process of Aborigines from Sydney (Australia)
Based on an ethnography of affects within an Aboriginal support group in the Redfern suburbs (Sydney), I question the socio-psychological situation of the Aborigines in contemporary Australia as they face many difficulties in their everyday life. I show how, built on the narrative of «intergenerational trauma», they seek to (re)create social bonding and how they search to redefine their perception of the current situation in order to increase their resilience.
