ByLorenzo Veracini
Pages 6

This conclusion presents some closing thoughts on the concepts covered in the preceding chapters of this book. The book demonstrates that settler space does not displace Indigenous space. It considers Te Ahu reproduction and circulation, recreate distinctly settler-colonial memoryscapes. The book focuses on a settler space located within another located within a nonsettler one. There is no more liminal space than this. The book also focuses on settler-colonial national canons and their constitution and surveillance by settler cultural elites. It investigates settler-colonial projects that operate within another polity's colonial domain. The German emigrant-settlers to Brazil in the first postwar years were eminently liminal settlers. The book analyzes of Nora Strange's settler-colonial novels and Kathryn McKay's analyses of psychiatric practice vis-a-vis Indigenous women also complement each other: one is about stories about settler recovery through settlement, the other is about stories of Indigenous downfall through settlement.
