The course explores themes of identity and autobiography in contemporary culture, with specific reference to the implications of Australia's complex intercultural relationships. It will examine these preoccupations in the context of current debates surrounding notions of individuality and cultural identity, and will address such issues as the nature and problems of self-representation in the visual arts; the nature and problems of theorising autobiography and the role of autobiography in feminist and cross-cultural literature. The course will draw on literature and the visual arts for its material. Students undertaking this course will be required to read and discuss a range of fiction to the critical material supplied for reading each week.
