About this Unit
From 2017 this unit replaced by 102516 - Australian History Around Us. Understanding local history is an integral part of establishing personal and community identities. Local studies are used as the foundation for many socio-economic studies across various disciplines as well as in school curricula. The University of Western Sydney is part of a region rich in history, little of which has been researched or published. Local history techniques involve understanding a variety of physical and documentary sources. Students learn the history of the Sydney region by assembling data from original historical sources, based at the Archives in Kingswood and Villawood and from on-line data repositories. There are opportunities for site visits to historical and archaeological sites and local museums.
