True Blue - On Being Australian

In the collection TRUE BLUE? we have attempted to problematise the notion of Australian identity for senior students. Our hope is that, through exposure to a range of competing and sometimes complementary perspectives, students will begin to formulate their own positions, learn more about the way identity has been discussed in this country and learn more about themselves and the ‘other’. 

It may be that they come to see identity as something constantly evolving but they may possibly see
recurring patterns. Perhaps they will be able to identify characteristics that are unique to Australia,
perhaps not. We hope, however, that in working with this collection their development as thoughtful,
engaged and active citizens of this country will be supported and enhanced.
