Australian Children's Literature - LIT855

This unit considers the development of Australian writing for children, with special emphasis on the last two decades. It examines the ways in which the concerns of Australian children's literature have evolved over the past century – for the purpose of interrogating the relationship between literature and significant social and cultural paradigm shifts, such as the emergence of multiculturalism, the impact of the women's movement, and changing notions of Australian cultural identity and nationhood.
