Catch up Online - ACIAC Chinese Australian History Seminar Series 1 (Lecture 6): One(multicultural) Nation (1972 to 2020)

This is a period of great change as Australia transforms itself into a multicultural nation and then begins to wonder what that means. It also transforms itself into a global economic free trader and then wonders what that means when China does too. As Australia’s trade with China grows exponentially, China’s trade with Australia remains proportionally the same. Students, tourists, and even powdered milk all begin to have an impact as Chinese Australian history not only begins to reflect back on itself but also add new dimensions in art, culture and even shopping as November 11 becomes Double 11! The final lecture in this reflective history asks what does Chinese Australian history tell us and what is the present trying to tell history?
