HSTY2604 - Popular Culture in Australia 1850-1945

Summer Main, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Matthew Richard Allen

Description

Between 1850 and 1945, a modern culture emerged from a collection of disparate colonies and people. Focusing on everyday life and new forms of popular culture, this unit follows the threads of modernity, gender and nationalism through this formative half-century. Popular stereotypes of Australian men and women evolved from society's engagement with new notions of time and space, urban and rural culture, modernism high and low, changing sexual and family politics, and all the seductive attractions of modern life.
