The rise of identity politics: an audit of history teaching at Australian universities in 2017

History Australian history Higher education Universities Australia

The main findings of this audit reveals that history has shifted away from the study of significant historical events and periods to a view of the past seen through the narrow lens of class, gender and race.

This research demonstrates what we have long known; that in general, the substance of Western Civilisation, which is essential to understanding our present and shaping our future is not being taught to Australian undergraduates studying history.
