STUDIES IN AUSTRALIAN HISTORY, Spring 2007

CULTURE AND THE UNCONSCIOUS

[Instructor]
David Day

[Course Guide]

Sub Title:

The history of Australia, 1788-2006

Course Description:

The course will examine how Europeans asserted legal ownership to the continent of Australia before proceeding over the following two centuries to buttress that legal claim with claims of effective and moral ownership. Like many other societies across the world, European Australians struggled to make land that was fruitfully occupied by its original inhabitants, in this case the Aborigines, as their own.
That struggle continues even today, with Australia still being shaped by the problematic circumstances of its origins and the ongoing struggle to become secure in its possession of the continent.
