This course explores nineteenth and twentieth-century Australia through the methods of cultural history. We begin by exploring how cultural history emerged as a discipline and discuss its possibilities and its challenges. We then move on to consider particular themes and debates within Australian historiography. Topics include: cross-cultural relations; manners, status and 'civilisation'; bohemianism; high and popular culture; sport; the beach; nationalism and imperialism; modernism and commercialism; Hollywood and celebrity.
