Book Description Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This book is a critical intervention into debates on Australia?s cultural history. The book demonstrates the interconnectedness of themes commonly seen as separate discursive formations, and shows the fruitfulness of bringing a combined cultural studies and post-colonial approach to bear on a number of fields, seen as pivotal to the formation and particular expression of Australian culture today. The book argues that a redefinition of the borders between what has been regarded and patrolled as discrete fields of Australian Studies is mandatory in order to alter definitions of Australia?s cultural history and identity away from the conventional histories of a settler culture gradually embracing a multicultural society. The Introduction argues for the productiveness of combining a cultural studies approach with post-colonial criticism and explains why the placement of Australian cultural history in the unconventional territorial representation of its Asian ?other? is not only enabling but necessary in order to divest Australian Studies of settlement history?s monolithic grasp on definitions of Australia?s cultural history. The subsequent Chapters examine Australian historiography (focusing on colonial beginnings), political history (focusing on relations with Indonesia and East Timor), multiculturalism (focusing on the Chinese in Australia), and anthropology (focusing on Aboriginal-?Asian? contact history) from this new angle.1. Infinite Rehearsals: Historiography and Australian Beginnings 2. Towards an Aboriginal-Asian Colonial Contact History 3. Geographic Dislocation: From European Satellite to Asian Backwater? 4. Multiculturalism and the Chinese-Australians Printed Pages: 176. Bookseller Inventory # 91345
