Cost: Teachers-$30 | Students-$20
This Study Day is designed for both teachers and Year 12 Extension History students. It analyses the historical debate around the concept of Anzac.
Facilitated by Dr Jennifer Lawless, this Study Day will feature leading historians and educators who will lead our exploration of how the term Anzac has been used (and abused) for political, commercial and cultural gain. We trace the origins of the ‘spirit of Anzac’ from the landing at Gallipoli through to the 21st century. We look at how the Anzac legend grew to mythical proportions to capture the imagination of a nation.
Focusing on Constructing History Case Study - Option 23 of the new History Extension Syllabus, content will address the areas of the Birth of a Nation and the role of Anzac in politics and culture in Australia.
