Citizenship and Democracy in Australian Politics (12 points)


Leader: Dr Jennifer Curtin

Clayton First semester 2003 (Day)

Synopsis: This unit seeks to explore how the meanings of citizenship and democracy have been contested in Australia over time through an examination of debates about community and the individual, norms and realities, belonging and exclusion, and the various successes and failures of a liberal egalitarian politics. It engages with a range of case studies which allow for students to investigate the development of citizenship and democracy in Australia and how issues of race, gender, ethnicity, class, age and culture have intersected and fractured this development.
