What does it mean to be Australian in the twenty-first century? How does Australia sit in the region and the world, in terms of society, politics, trade and cultural traditions? The interdisciplinary nature of Australian studies allows students to draw on a range of scholarly traditions for a broader understanding of Australian cultures, lifestyles and societies. Subjects focus on social, cultural, political and economic aspects of the Australian experience within broad regional and global contexts. Individual units focus on Australian cultural history and contemporary popular culture (especially film and television, sport and travel), war and its aftermath, environmental issues, and Australia's connections with its region and the world. This minor builds an understanding of the ways in which the social and cultural spheres intersect with politics and the economy, and how Australia's domestic context interacts with its international connections.
Australia in the world is listed in A2000 Bachelor of Arts at Caulfield and Clayton and 0202 Bachelor of Letters at Clayton as a minor.
