This subject will develop students broader understanding of contemporary Australian history and politics, including how history and politics affect the lived experiences of Indigenous Australians from British invasion to the present. From a political history disciplinary perspective, this subject will ask students to analyse and interpret the impact of social forces on Australian government processes and policies, influenced by factors that include migrants, women and international relations. Students will learn to investigate how history and politics are determined, by whom and for what reason. Students will develop skills to analyse and debate, interpret and communicate complex ideas and express these ideas to their student peers and in academic writing.
