Semiotics and history : Entering a No-go zone with Patrick Wolfe

Mishra, V.ORCID: 0000-0002-0193-9736 and Hodge, B. (1992) Semiotics and history : Entering a No-go zone with Patrick Wolfe. Meanjin, 51 (4). pp. 877-883.

The authors present a response to Patrick Wolfe's review of their book 'Dark Side of the Dream' (Meanjin 2/1992). They suggest that Wolfe's proposal to have an epistemological no-go zone around Aboriginal meanings which semioticians should not enter is wrong in that it creates a rift between history and semiotics, and also undermines the struggle of academics against racist elements in Australia.
