John Morton

Dr Morton currently teaches general anthropology and Aboriginal studies. He has conducted several years of ethnographic research with Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory, South Australia and New South Wales, largely in relation to land rights, native title and heritage protection. He held positions at the Australian National University and Macquarie University before coming to La Trobe in 1990.

Dr Morton has published widely in both general anthropology and Aboriginal studies. He has addressed many conferences, both in Australia and overseas. His research interests in Aboriginal studies include land tenure, religion (myth and ritual), public Aboriginality (including indigenous representation in museums) and indigenous links to Australian environmentalism. He has also prepared many reports for Aboriginal organisations and related public bodies.
