dc.description.abstractThis article is written within the context of the visual arts. It explores the Golliwog doll and its interpretation as a racist symbol, its origins and the problems it presents today. It includes a special reference to an encounter between a group of Aboriginal Australians in the state of Victoria, Australia, with images of the Golliwog doll on tea towels at a market stall. The experience, which was reported in the Melbourne newspaper, The Age, was responded to in a vigorous online debate, consisting of written commentaries by approximately 114 individuals. Their responses reveal contemporary Australian attitudes to the doll and its relationship to history. For historical accuracy, some outmoded, derogatory, or sensitive terms which may be considered offensive when included in other contexts, are used in the following text or quotations (e.g. ‘Golliwog’, ‘white’, ‘black’, ‘Piccaninny’, ‘Negro’, ‘Nigger’, ‘Sambo’, ‘race’, etc.). Some spellings may differ when quoted (e.g. ‘Golliwogg’, ‘Golliwog’, ‘Golly Wogs’).
