Understanding this Region HAA001

Note:

Introduction

Understanding this Region is an interdisciplinary foundation unit which will provide you with a regional, national and international understanding of this part of the world, focusing on its unique and complex nature. You will be introduced to Australian history, to Indigenous matters both historical and contemporary, to Asian studies, and to Australias neighbours and closest relationships in the region. In addition, you will be encouraged to reflect on what you think Australias region is, and to develop an awareness of how identities in this region have influenced one another. You will become familiar with the breadth of study in the Humanities and Social
Sciences, and learn how various disciplines approach the same topic from different perspectives
