Deconstruction Example Many questions people ask about Indigenous Australia reveal more about the person asking than the intended subject of enquiry. For example: “If we come from Adam and Eve then where do black people come from?’

  • Who is ‘we’? Is this framing indicative of an ‘us and them’ position of ‘inclusion – exclusion’?
  • Is the (conscious or unconscious) worldview here related to a Christian-based socialisation process which sees Christianity as ‘normal’ and everything else as peripheral?
  • This appears to be an ‘othering’ question. Who frames ‘the other’? What assumptions are made?
  • Can a case be made that this is a Eurocentric, ethnocentric, exclusionist position that perpetuates colonial notions of a ‘God–given dominion’.
  • ‘… black people’ - Does this indicate a dismissal of diversity? Is there an assumed homogenous explanation for the origins of ‘the other’?
  • Could this question be classified as one that could only be framed by someone who is an unwitting beneficiary of a dominant hegemony (power/control/authority).
  • Is ‘structured white privilege’ inherent in such a question?
  • Does this question reveal a lack of understanding as to how Christian stories arrived on these

shores: “Your left hand holds a Bible while your right hand holds a gun” (Kev Carmody-‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’)?

  • What does this question reveal about the persistence of the ‘christianising’/’civilising’ project that gave invasion and colonisation ‘moral’ reinforcement? Tips for the Deconstruction Exercise
  • Do not answer the question.
  • Break the question down into words and analyse the words used.
  • What is the question implying?
  • What assumptions does the question make?
  • Does the question echo stereotypes?
  • Does the question exhibit a lack of understanding?
  • Please read the FAQ about the Deconstruction assignment available on the FLO site

  • What knowledge is being privileged?
  • What is the source of the knowledge and its authority?
  • What views of power do they embody?
  • What knowledge is being ignored?
  • What cultural, political or social practices are expressed in these ideas?
  • What is it that causes me to maintain my ideas or theories?
  • Whose interests seem to be served by my practices?
  • What is it that acts to constrain my views of what is possible in nursing and midwifery?
  • What would I do differently?
  • What do I consider to be important from a nursing or midwifery perspective?
