About

Sharon’s current research explores how Aboriginal women with white husbands/partners and/or Aboriginal men with white wives/partners perceive experiences of their racial and cultural identity formation in relation to their selection of a mate from a race other than that into which they were born. Whilst interracial intimacy has featured before in Australian scholarship, this is the first comprehensive inquiry to examine black-white racial intimacy in contemporary Australia, from an auto-ethnographic perspective.
