Abstract

This paper uses a Bourdiuean framework to examine the complex representation of Australia's multiculturalism in a children's novel, Have Courage Hazel Green. The paper explores the relationship between nation and citizenship to expose the survval and limitations of the rhetoric of toleration in race and ethnic relations. The paper examines the disjuncture between natonal mythologies and lived experiences in the explicitly multicilural state.
