Ocean to Outback

Cosmopolitanism in Contemporary Australia

Edited by: Keith Jacobs, Jeff Malpas

Some of the most enduring conflicts and tensions that have bedeviled Australia in recent years stem from notions of nationality and citizenship, ethnicity and migration, community and place. Vigorous debates about multiculturalism, national identity, and the meaning of terrorism still ignite tension and divide. In Ocean to Outback, contributors use the concept of cosmopolitanism to address concerns that continue to confront Australia. Writing from specific locations, each essay explores the possibilities of cosmopolitanism as an ongoing political project and considers the implications for Australia's sense of connection to the wider world.
