Urban Australia. Course HP02b: Part Time BA Degree Programme.
Griffith Univ., Brisbane (Australia). School of Humanities.
This course, one of 16 sequential courses comprising phase one of a part-time Bachelor of Arts degree program in Australian Studies, contrasts the literary image of an Australian rural national character with the evidence of a predominantly urban character for postwar Australia. It is designed for independent study combined with tutorial sessions. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the course and its study objective. Chapter 2, "Social Science Criticisms of the Bush Legend: Types of Evidence and Argument," covers legend and the reality of increasing urbanization. Chapter 3, "Cities and Suburbs in Australia," deals with the images of urban and suburban life and suburban inequalities. Chapter 4, "Using Empirical Evidence," introduces the use of statistics, while Chapter 5, "Urban and Social Structure of Brisbane 1976," uses Brisbane as a case study of the issues discussed earlier. The two tutorial sessions for this course deal with the substantive issues raised in the course and with improving written communication. Also included are lists of required readings, additional readings, a bibliography, and self-assessment questions. (IS)
