Australian History since 1901 - MHIS302
This unit presents a social and cultural history of Australia in the 20th century, offering broad ranging and diverse interpretations of the period. We cover the fundamental political changes from the early years of the Labor Party, right through to the rise of the Right and Pauline Hanson on the cusp of the new millennium. We explore the foundations of the Australian national identity and analyse the manifest social changes that occurred across the century. We feature the central developments of the century, from war to depression and back to war again, as well as addressing the everyday experiences of Australians through looking at migration, suburbanisation, protest, and popular culture. The unit considers Australian history through various categories of analysis, including class, race, ethnicity and gender.
