Australia: Conflict and Transformation - HSTY1089

Year - 2018

Australia has been called the 'quiet continent', but conflict has been part of its history since 1788. This unit examines the violence of convict society, frontier conflict and early battles for self-government. It maps the political struggles, contested stories and shifts in Indigenous-settler relations that accompanied the creation of a nation state after 1880, and explores the effects of war on different social groups. Finally, it charts Australia's cultural and political transformation after 1945 into the postindustrial postcolonial society of today.
