This subject introduces students to the development of Australian literature and culture through a study of a wide variety of creative and literary texts (e.g. novels, plays, poetry, films, and songs). From poetic considerations of landscape to Indigenous responses to colonisation, students will read and analyse a selection of creative and literary texts from different periods, taking into account changing cultural, geographical, and material contexts. Throughout the subject students will consider the ways that Australian literature reflects complex problems, contributes to significant national debates, and shapes conceptual understandings of the world.
