AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In attempting to trace the formation of an Australian moral code at the heart of white Australian identity, the study examines the link between morality and aggression in the history of white Australia, thus providing an introduction to a psychoanalytic sociology of Australian culture. It includes discussion of works by Henry Handel Richardson, George Johnston, Patrick White, David Malouf and Tim Winton.

'It's a Hungry Home' : Postcolonial Displacements, Popular Music and the Sacred Lyn McCredden , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: Journal of Postcolonial Writing , August vol. 43 no. 2 2007; (p. 216-231)
'This essay, through a theorized analysis of Australian popular song lyrics, investigates a range of understandings of "home", including the exclusions and sacred connotations that inform the term. Against accusations of mere sentimentality or nostalgia regarding a desire for "home" as familiar and comforting and in response to Levinas's related arguments that a desire for home is at the root of "splitting humanity into natives and strangers", it argues that it is necessary for postcolonial Australia to embrace "homelessness at the heart of any understanding of "home"' (216). McCredden's essay draws on the lyrics of Icehouse, Goanna, Midnight Oil, and Yothu Yindi, as well as a poem by Judith Wright to argue that 'for colonized and colonizers, holding together the human need for home with an understanding of the constant reality of human dislocatedness is a riven, necessary and unending process' (230).
