Course Summary

We explore the search for national self-definition through literature and the arts in 1930’s, Australia. In doing so, we explore the conflicting visions of poets and painters who are struggling with the pressure of internationalism, an indigenous culture and a persistent colonial legacy.

Currently, we have no dates scheduled for this course. Please contact us via email to register your interest.

The1930’s was a fascinating period of time for Australian’s searching for national self-definition; none more so than our artists and poets. In a few years we would be faced with the dark days of the Second World War – but what could be achieved in the twilight of peace?

Gain a better understanding of the life, times, work of key individuals and hopefully be inspired to further explore the subject, post-course.

There is no perquisite for enrolling in this course.
