Julie Andrews Lecturer, Anthropology

Julie Andrews is descended from the Wurundjeri people of Melbourne and the Yorta Yorta tribe near the borders of Victoria and New South Wales along the Murray River. She is a member of the Dhulanyagan family clan of the Ulupna people. Julie has been teaching Aboriginal Studies for approximately 10 years and has extensive experience in policy and Indigenous higher education. She teaches the first year Discovery subject HUS1ABS: Introduction to Aboriginal Australia. This subject is taught across all of La Trobe University campuses. It is a blended subject of online lectures and face to face workshops. The subject is basically a very broad introduction to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues. It is useful for those wanting to know more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples or building upon what they may already know. It gives the student an opportunity to explore the many topics that are associated with Aboriginal Australia. Julie also teaches an On Country subject titled Encountering Aboriginal Victoria: Parallel Systems of Knowledge. This subject is taught at La Trobe University's Shepparton campus and focuses on the history and contemporary Aboriginal community of the township of Shepparton and the Barmah region.
