Course aim

To further develop students' understanding of key developments in twentieth-century Australian history and the processes leading to contemporary nationalism.

Course content

Students will develop an understanding of Australia's twentieth century history up to the present, particularly concepts of identity that derive from major events in the past.  Such major events include: the aftermath of the First World War, the Great Depression; consolidation and rise of Aboriginal activism, World War II in both Europe and the Pacific and its' role in diminishing Australia's place in the British empire, the post-war baby boom, and the social and cultural impact of immigration, cold war conservatism of the 1950s, the end of the Menzies era and the Hawke and Keating years, pendulous swings in achievements and setbacks in Indigenous self-determination in the 1990s, dominated by the Howard era and where South Australia fits into the national narrative.
