Subject Description
This subject explores images of Australians, the Australian nation, and the Australian continent. It approaches the subject from an historical and cultural perspective and asks what being Australian has meant to different people at different times. We consider social groups and individuals who have shaped dominant notions of national identity and those who have challenged them. What does being Australian mean, for example, to Indigenous people, to women, to immigrants and how have those meanings changed over time? The subject also critically examines expressions of Australian identity through some of its national practices and rituals such as Australia Day, Anzac Day, Mardi Gras, tourism, and the beach.
