This course, one of 16 sequential courses comprising phase one of a part-time Bachelor of Arts degree program in Australian Studies, examines the bases for the selection of particular works of Australian literature as classics. The roles played by educational curricula and by literary criticism in presenting an Australian literature in the context of an Australian society are considered. The course is designed for independent study combined with tutorial sessions. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the course and its study objectives. Chapter 2 deals with the meaning of literary traditions. Chapters 3, 4, and 5, examine the emergence of Australian literature, by focusing on Australian literary history, the intelligentsia, nationalism, and debate at the university level. Chapter 6,"New Definitions of Australian Literature," considers challenges to literary orthodoxy. Chapter 7 reviews the previous chapters. Materials for tutorial sessions cover chapters 1-6. Also included are lists of required readings, additional readings, a bibliography, and self-assessment questions. (IS)
