Re: Healy on Conor, 'Skin Deep: Settler Impressions of Aboriginal Women'

I love Conor's work but is there a problem with the way many writers in Aboriginal history elide the meaning and role of colonists by calling them settlers. Is the use of the simple word settler masking colonialism? The deliberate use of the soft word newcomer contrasts harshly with the word invasion and thus creates a confusing context. And context really is everything in history as it is the culture that informs the behaviours of historical agents.
