Subject Description
Culture can be a way to consolidate nations and states. How has this happened in a “young” nation-state like Australia? This subject introduces students to the development of literature in Australia from the late nineteenth century to the present day and examines poetry, novels, films and short stories. Students will consider national literature as a cultural project shaped by writers in response to a changing nation-state.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to demonstrate:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the relation of Australian literature and film to the cultural project of nation-forming
2. Demonstrate skills in the critical close reading of texts
3. Consider different ways in which the production and reception of texts relate to social contexts
4. Demonstrate an understanding of critical concepts such as genre and narrative forms
5. Demonstrate skills in the presentation of written arguments
