About this Unit
At the beginning of the twenty-first century, multiculturalism remains an important topic of debate both in Australia and the world at large. This unit explores the concept of multiculturalism in a historical perspective and across a variety of sites. While concentrating upon Australian multiculturalism, the syllabus also encompasses the study of multiculturalism in a variety of international contexts. Particular attention is paid to the relations between multiculturalism and nationalism, the role of religion, the relation of multiculturalism to Indigenous politics, and to the increased pressures placed upon cultural difference and diversity by globalisation.
