OverviewThis subject explores the concept of 'difference' and the way it is practised in communication. It introduces students to theories of difference, discourse and subjectivity as well as the ethical implications of representing difference in particular cultural contexts. There is a particular emphasis on the ways in which Indigenous Australia is represented and represents itself in different times and places, as well as the creation and uses of communication protocols. It also explores alternative forms of representation by groups and asks students to create their own audio critiques into normative representations.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
