Subject outline

Australian literature has been seen as interested in trying to locate a specifically Australian identity. In this subject we consider twentieth and twenty-first century Australian writing which is in some way concerned with identifying Australian place, nationality, character, and landscape through representations of the past and our contemporary world. We examine the various ways in which history and place is used to present or contest versions of Australia.
