What is distinctive and what is more widely shared in historical work undertaken in Australia in the 21st century?

This unit considers the significance of particular regional attributes for historians, including Australia’s location in the South Pacific and its proximity to Asia; the history of regional colonisation and decolonisation; and the ways in which grand interpretive themes such as development, modernisation and the Cold War have played out in southern settings.

Students will embark on intellectual and practical exercises in the history of Australia’s region, with greater exploration of what it means to be undertaking ‘history from here’, from a contemporary Australia with its own distinctive histories. This also involves seeing the world from perspectives such as the ‘South’ or viewing Asia as ‘method’ and asking what it means to ‘decolonise the curriculum’.
