Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Arts
School or Department : School of Humanities and Communication


This course presents a survey of selected Australian novels written during the period 1975-2010. Through detailed exploration of works by writers like Tim Winton and Peter Carey, the course will examine how these works reflect both the changing nature of Australian culture during this period and the impact of post-modernism. It will direct particular attention to the way in which these books contest social, cultural and political orthodoxies.
