Overview

Australian Stories offers students knowledge content and critical skills that are valued in many fields. It is the second course in the English Literature major and is offered in the interdisciplinary majors for Australian Studies, Popular Culture and Writing & Society. The course is also regularly recommended to students in Education programs. The skills in reading, interpretation, research, and essay writing taught in this course remain useful throughout a student’s program of study and beyond, as attributes in postgraduate study, general employability, and lifelong learning.

This course serves as an introduction to Australian stories and the role they play in the formation of cultural identities. It examines the heterogeneity of Australian culture through its stories and will direct particular attention to the way in which narrative reimagines social, cultural and political values.
