HI1002 - Australian History

Credit points: 3
Year: 2023
Student Contribution Band: Band 4
Administered by: College of Arts, Society & Education

Australian History was formed on the earth's oldest continent among people belonging to the world's longest established and continuous culture. Yet, most histories start with the planting of the British flag in 1788. So when did Australia actually become a nation? And how was the idea of Australian history shaped over time? Shifting between the levels of local history and international politics, this subject traces the cultural, social, political, and economic forces that shaped Australia.

  • apply historical techniques in analysis, leading to an ability to interpret and evaluate specific contexts and periods of Indigenous and colonial Australian history;
