AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Two groups of unconnected friends are trying to find their place in life. Over the next twelve months, the two groups of friends travel down various paths, seeking love and fulfillment, with every turn leading them away from what they'd hoped to find. It's New Year's Eve. Life in the metropolis has kept the two groups of friends apart, but now destiny brings them together in a remote beach house. The New Year is looking brighter already.'

In this chapter, Collins and Davis analyse how emergent themes within contemporary Australian cultural studies, repudiate 'the 19th century bush as the template for a British-derived national identity, turning instead to the cosmopolitan city , the multi-cultural suburbs, and the hedonistic holiday coast as templates for the a dynamic, post-national, post-multi-cultural identity in the 21st century.' The authors argue that 'the problem of belonging and of being at home in Australia is evident in the afterwardness of the history wars that followed the Mabo decision.'
