Subject: ENGL20009 The Australian Imaginary
1 Comment on ENGL20009 The Australian Imaginary
Ken Gelder is a very engaging lecturer, but often the lectures tend to focus too much on explaining the obvious rather than offering a compelling interpretation of the text and its relationship to Australian culture. Furthermore, while I enjoyed a lot of the texts selected, there was perhaps a little too much focus on early colonial writing which was fairly tedious to get through. Overall, if you have interest in Australian writing or want a deeper exposure to new texts you may not have encountered, this is a good subject to take.
