'We're multicultural mate!' : regional Australian discourses of multiculturalism and the reproduction of 'white Australia' as a national identity /

by Koerner, Catherine | The Australian Sociological Association | Haggis, Jane.

Publisher: unpub. 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Conference paper presented at The Australian Sociological Association (TASA) Conference. Social Causes, Private Lives (2010 : North Ryde, N.S.W.) Bibliography : p. 10-11Summary: This paper considers the complexities of 'everyday understandings' of multiculturalism as a discourse to deal with racialised difference. The paper is based on one of the author's doctoral research which analyses the complexities of how whiteness and race are socially produced and lived in regional Australia. Drawing on a set of qualitative interviews conducted in South Australia with 29 people who self-identity as 'white Australian' we consider the social and political history of a 'white Australia' continues to inform the terms of multiculturalism for these people. We argue that this reflects the ways that state multiculturalism manages diversity and obscures the language of race. As a consequence the white national identity remains raced without an everyday vocabulary to deal with it.Availability: (1)

We recognise that CaLD children and families are commonly disadvantaged through being part of a minority group in Australia, their experiences prior to migration (for example refugee trauma), the different values and practices they may encounter here, the difficulty of learning a new language, the problems they face having qualifications and experience ratified, and the varying forms of racism the may experience. A number of innovative and highly successful programmes operate in different areas of Australia that are very successful in supporting CaLD families." -- Summary. ; CULTURALLY AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE (CALD)Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
