Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

This article examines two major debates in contemporary Australian discourses on the nation: climate change and whiteness studies. It is primarily concerned with establishing a framework for connecting the two discourses, and in that process it raises pivotal questions about how narratives about contemporary Australia feed on particular versions of the nation’s past.
