GCThis course will explore the literature and arts of Indigenous and contemporary Australia. While focusing on the ways Australian literature and art engage with present-day concerns -- among them environmental challenges, the movement toward Indigenous sovereignty, and Australia's changing place in the world -- we will also delve into the continent's two-century history of colonization and Indigenous dispossession. Watch this short video clip to learn more!
