Shaping the National Outlook: International News in the Australian Press 1901-1950

    Project: Other

    Description

    How did Australians view the world in the first half of the 20th century? This project examines the technological and institutional conditions which shaped news flow to Australia between 1901 and 1950. It will discover how a very particular representation framed Australia's outlook. It situates issues of news flow within larger forces of change including imperialism, globalisation and shifts in international power. The press is considered in relation to both the unfolding of events and their subsequent interpretation. The project will be a major contribution to Australian history, particularly via its scrutiny of the media dimension of Australia's international relations.
