Unit description:

Considers 20th-century Australian writing, with a focus on gender and race, and in the context of recent developments in Australian and (post) colonial cultural history. Organised historically, the unit is designed to examine the tenuous and yet radical cultural authority offered to cultural work in the nationalist project of white Australian literature. In a selection of influential as well as innovative, even marginal, texts from Indigenous, non-Anglo and white Australian writers, a spectrum of imaginative challenges to the singular concept of ‘Australia’ is presented.
