Australian Spaces: Images of the Urban
AUS 100 (Offering: 2003)


Movies like Crocodile Dundee and Priscilla Queen of the Desert or television programs such as The Great South East play on our image of Australian spaces. This course analyses images of characteristic places in Australia; places such as the beach, nightclub, pub, country town, Noosa, Olympic Games venues, suburban backyard, or Uluru. Examples from film, television, tourist brochures and environmental planning are used to introduce techniques for analysing our relation to place. What is distinctive about the way places in Australia are imagined and how has the idea of Australian places changed over time?
