Content

How do we understand European-Aboriginal relations in Australia today and the impact of post-World War II immigration and multiculturalism? AIA104 looks at the impact of British settlement on Aboriginal cultures and on definitions of nationality which excluded Aboriginal relations with the land. Older generations of Australians feared both 'strange' European migrants and closer ties with Asia. Specific subjects include indigenous land rights and self-determination, the stolen generations, the continuing gap in living standards between indigenous and other Australians, the indigenous cultural resurgence, the experience of post-war immigration, debates about multiculturalism, migrants in the workforce, migrant communities in Australia, refugees and asylum seekers, the impact of the 'war on terror' in Australia and questions of what old Australian ideas of the 'fair go' and 'mateship' mean in a changed and diverse Australia..
