|Abstract:||This paper discusses the place of concepts and practices of assimilation within liberal strategies of government generally, as the foundation for understanding the ways in which they were mobilised in relation to Indigenous Australians. The overall argument is a dual one: to see particular logics of assimilation as integral to liberal government, and also to remain sensitive to what was specific about the assimilation of Indigenous Australians as a particular example of the exercise of political power under settler-colonialism.|
