Australia was the first new nation of the twentieth century. How did Australia change over the twentieth century and beyond? In AIA103 we study Australia's transformation into a new nation in the 'new world' - from a British imperial outpost in 1901 to an independent nation. How has our connection with Britain been stretched, shaped and reformed since 1901? We study how Australian cultural, political and economic life changed with special reference to the rise and pause in Australian republicanism, our shift from hostility to Asia to the pursuit of economic and cultural engagement and our shift in cultural allegiances and links from Britain to the United States. Since Britain remains a major source of immigrants and many Australians go to visit London, and many institutions are on imported models, our past still influences the present. At the same time, how distinctive is our new world nation, Australia?
