GALLIPOLI: FROM THE TROJAN WAR TO THE GREAT WAR

CAH2GAL

2018

Credit points: 15

This subject addresses La Trobe's Global Citizenship Essential. Global Citizenship is about learning to live in an interconnected world, including the social, environmental, political and economic challenges this brings.

Subject outline

In this subject, students learn about the long history of the Gallipoli peninsula and surrounding landscape. The subject examines the peninsula as a locus of conflict over three thousand years and positions the 1915 First World War Anzac Campaign within a much greater mythical, historical, political and cultural context. Students analyse, interpret and synthesise historical, literary, cultural and material evidence dating back to antiquity. Comparisons between ancient heroes of the Trojan War and Australian soldiers fighting in the same landscape will be examined to better understand the archetypal masculine hero. This subject will also shed light on the lesser told stories about the Gallipoli Campaign and deconstruct the reasons archetypal hero narratives are so dominant in this landscape. When they complete this subject, students will have a better understanding of how the classics have influenced Australians' understanding of the Gallipoli Campaign. They will have also been introduced to the discipline of Classical Reception Studies.
