Subject Description
Gallipoli' occupies a significant place in Australia's history. This subject takes students to Turkey and the Peninsula to place 'Gallipoli' within its physical and cultural context. It examines Troy, Constantinople and the Ottoman Empire to provide the broad historical and cultural context for the study tour, the campaign in 1915 with a special emphasis on the Anzac sector and notions of pilgrimage, commemoration and grief. Lectures and seminars provide the introduction to the subject and will be followed by in situ seminars in Turkey and a debriefing seminar on returning to the main campus. Students will spend a week in Turkey.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Evaluate the historiography of the Gallipoli Campaign by situating it within its context of the Ottoman Empire and Australia’s participation in the campaign as part of the British Empire.
2. Demonstrate knowledge of one battle from the campaigns and what life was like at the front based on the experience of an individual soldier or nurse.
3. Revisit assumptions made about the campaign in situ by visiting the battlefields and presenting to the group their summary of the chosen battle and locating the areas where their soldier of nurse lived or died. During the time on the Gallipoli Peninsula, there will be tutorial sessions at the end of the day.
