About the Author

Penny Edmonds is Associate Professor and Australian Research Council Future Fellow in the School of Humanities, University of Tasmania, Australia. She is the author of Urbanizing Frontiers: Indigenous Peoples and Settlers in 19th-Century Pacific Rim Cities (2010); co-editor of Making Settler Colonial Space: Perspectives on Race, Place and Identity (2010) and co-editor of Conciliation on Colonial Frontiers: Conflict, Performance, and Commemoration in Australia and the Pacific Rim (2015).


"Penelope Edmonds, in Settler Colonialism and (Re)conciliation, employs a historical methodology to examine how reconciliation discourse is deployed and refuted in affective performances. ... a useful addition to the literature on transitional justice and on reconciliation in settler societies, particularly because they acknowledge the tensions around whether and how transitional justice might actually be of use for relationships between Indigenous peoples, non-Indigenous peoples and the state." (Sophie Rigney, International Journal of Transitional Justice, Vol. 11 (2), July, 2017)

"The strength of Edmonds' analysis lies in her transnational comparisons that show how Indigenous performances hold settler colonial societies to account for the way they sanitise the past through reconciliation events to realise a specious post-racial future. ... this book is a vital contribution to Indigenous studies because of the tendency of settler colonial societies to use the consensus politics of reconciliation to rationalise the theft of Indigenous lands and colonial violence." (Joshua L. Reid, Australian Historical Studies, Vol. 48 (2), May, 2017)
