Australian Perspectives: Representing Place, Nation and Identity
This unit explores the multiple ways in which Australia has been represented through cultural narratives. It focuses on three places in Australia, including Sydney, examining the different ways in which film, literature, television, historical writing, life writing and other cultural forms have responded to, contested and made sense of the new place that settler Australia has been. It provides training in the interdisciplinary approaches of Australian Studies, exposing students to representations from many sources and periods.
