Colonisation has left an indelible imprint on Australia. This course will explore the past and current impacts of difficult histories and present tensions in Australia and in comparative international spaces, which also have experienced colonisation, ethnic conflict and cross-cultural tension. Using a framework of 'cultural wounding' and 'healing' this course will examine the wounds left by inter-ethnic tensions and the ways in which different cultural identities go about surviving and potentially thriving. How cultural groups and nations negotiate these histories and their contemporary legacies is central to this exploration; which aims to develop theory and timely practical approaches to facilitate richer understandings of intercultural futures. The course will consider the context of Australia, to map pathways towards productive and equitable futures for all, in particular Indigenous populations and marginalised groups. Students will engage with a range of sources - ethnographic, narrative, cinematic, musical and artistic – and will be introduced to theories of cultural trauma, collective memory and recovery.
