Australians in War and Peace examines historical perspectives on the cost of war and the price of peace in Australia, beginning with frontier conflicts across the nineteenth century through to more recent overseas operations by Australian forces. Central consideration will be given to the British possession and occupation of Australia, Australia's participation in two world wars 1914-1918 and 1939-1945, and the terms and conditions of peace through to the present. The subject investigates the implications of limited and total war, and the consequences at home and abroad through an analysis of social, cultural and medical discourses focusing in particular on frontier violence 1788-1940, the 1915 Gallipoli campaign and the Western Front, the Pacific war following the fall of Singapore in 1942, Vietnam (1962-1972) and Afghanistan since 2001. The subject includes an investigation of artistic, journalistic, literary, testimonial, and televisual and cinematic treatments of Australians in war and peace.
