A cultural and political history of community formation and exclusion in Australia since 1788.
By exploring the 'boundaries of belonging', this paper examines key moments in Australian history where practices of inclusion and exclusion have been in tension, and how these moments have shaped the development of Australian identity. The paper also critically engages with the conceptual frameworks used to imagine and describe nations, and the formation of national identities.
