Issues in Australian Heritage
Introduces the field of heritage to postgraduate students in Australian Studies. Using paper-based, email supported distance teaching mode, this course will encourage students to engage with the heritage industry in a critical fashion. Heritage is the most popular form of history, but it is also a field which creates intense conflict between government authorities, property owners, community members and would-be developers. We will consider whose past is represented by heritage, and its costs and benefits. Drawing on the ideas of advocates and critics of heritage, students will mount their own case studies of Australian heritage and develop insights into the workings of the industry and its impact on Australian society.
