About this Unit
This unit considers changes to Australian national identity in recent times. It explores traditional archetypes and myths and examines the social forces which have undermined these. Such forces include globalisation and transnational political and economic developments as well as internal community dissent. Particular consideration is given to the role of the Aboriginal movement and ways in which its members have resisted colonial histories and monocultural assumptions about the Australian way of life.
