'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)

Building on Our Strengths : a framework to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity in Victoria. Summary report /

by Victorian Health Promotion Foundation.

Publisher: Carlton, Vic. Victorian Health Promotion Foundation 2009Description: 56 p. : col. ill. ; 30 cm.Other title: Building on our strengths : summary report.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: "Addressing the social and economic determinants of mental and physical health" Victorian Health Promotion Foundation commonly known as VicHealth Full report only available online. Includes bibliography.Summary: Building on our strengths: a framework to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity in Victoria has been developed through a partnership between the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation (VicHealth), the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, the McCaughey Centre: VicHealth Centre for the Promotion of Mental Health and Community Wellbeing and the Onemda VicHealth Koori Health Unit. The McCaughey Centre and Onemda are both in the School of Population Health at the University of Melbourne. ; Drawing on the best available evidence in Australia and internationally, this report outlines themes, strategies and priority settings for the development and implementation of activity to reduce race-based discrimination and support diversity. Although recognising that discrimination has a specific meaning in law, this report takes a broader approach, being concerned with behaviours and practices that result in avoidable and unfair inequalities across groups in society based on race, ethnicity, culture or religion. ; Despite widespread support for diversity among Victorians, the data presented in this report indicate that race-based discrimination remains unacceptably high. These findings are of particular concern given increasing evidence that race-based discrimination impacts negatively on both individuals and the community. This includes evidence of links with ill-health and reduced productivity, social inclusion and community cohesion. Reducing race-based discrimination will be critical if the Victorian and Australian governments are to meet their commitments to achieve equitable health for all Australians and, in particular, to eliminate the gaps in health, social and economic status between people from Indigenous and non-indigenous backgrounds. ; Building on our strengths is driven by the goal of achieving sustainable reductions in race-based discrimination, with associated medium- and long-term benefits to individuals, organisations, communities and society. It is intended for broad usage across government, corporate, non-government and community sectors as a useful resource in policy and program development, implementation and evaluation.
