Course Description: This course offers an introduction to key social, political, and environmental issues which are shaping contemporary Australia. It is ideal for international students, for students whose main area of study lies outside the humanities, and for students who wish to gain a broad understanding of the complex challenges facing Australia today. The course examines current debates in Australia, and explores the following topics: arguments surrounding social justice for Aborigines; immigration and asylum seekers; environmental concerns; social inequality; the relationships between men and women; and Australia's identity and the impact of globalization. Students are encouraged to develop their own analyses of contemporary Australia using appropriate theoretical constructs, fieldwork, and a variety of sources.
