Abstract

Education history, especially in Australia, has been slow to respond to the spatial turn in the social sciences. Analysis of school history syllabuses and materials in Australia from 1850 to the present demonstrates that understandings of Australia and Australian identities were formed around notions of place, ethnicity and race, and metaphors of family, kinship and home as well as concepts of nation.
