The aim of Australian Literature and Identity is to show you how Australia as a nation is imagined through various contemporary works of literature, particularly from the immediate post-war period until now (1945 onwards). You will explore the ways in which Australian identities are constituted, changed and challenged by these texts, through a variety of critical perspectives and contexts of reception. You will also reflect on how the texts challenge or reinforce your thinking about Australian ideologies and/or identity.
