History and Politics offers students the interpretive tools with which they may attempt to understand the past and the present. Offerings are grouped into four broad areas: social movements, political theory and political economy, culture and civilisations and war and state development. Our subjects explore a wide variety of topics from Ancient Greece to the latest anti-globalisation protest. Our teaching and research covers aspects of people, community, society, government, conflict and war in Australia, the Pacific, Asia, Europe and the Americas.
