  • Subject Code :


Write a 1000-word response answering the broad question: What does it mean for migrants to ‘belong’ in Australia?

The task involves the collection of real-world data about the experiences and sense of belonging of migrants through the processes of migration. Use the evidence you collect to explore the answer to this question. You must analyse and present the data you gather with reference to some of the ideas, concepts or theories we have learnt about in this unit or from further research (and they must be referenced) and to support any analysis or point-of-view that you present.

You have a choice of possible data collection options.

  1. INTERVIEW: You could interview family member(s) or friend(s) about their immigration experience: why and how they migrated; travel; cultural difference; sense of belonging and identity transformation. If you select this option you will need to provide a Consent Form filled out by interview informants.
  2. DOCUMENTATION OF MATERIAL CULTURE: You could photograph and discuss the significance of a collection of material objects associated with a migrant experience or citizenship (e.g. suitcase, tickets, objects carried from homeland, diaries, letters or postcards) and may also involve discussing objects with informants. In this case you will need to provide a Consent Form (as above).
  3. VISIT IMMIGRATION MUSEUM: Visit the Exhibition ‘Identity: yours, mine, ours’ either in person or online. You will collect evidence of migrant experiences from the Museum Exhibition. The Immigration Museum is located: 400 Flinders St, Melbourne. Opening Hours: Daily from 10 to 5pm. Entry is free with Student Card or student travel concession card. Exhibition is on the top floor.
All options would benefit from checking out the on-line Exhibition:

You may either scan the form and include it as an Appendix in the Report or upload as a separate file when you submit.
