This subject charts dominant ideas in Australian history that transformed themselves into broad-based social movements. It is constructed around the biographies of prominent transnational figures to explore the ways in which developments in Australia were connected to ideas elsewhere in the world. We approach women's rights, alternative lifestyles, labour politics, urban planning, Aboriginal welfare and racial politics to understand a series of interconnected ideas.
