As Andrea Witcomb states, ‘... it is perhaps not surprising that Australia’s first museums were natural history museums in which the ‘strangeness’ of the Antipodes could be made known and conquered through scientific classification systems’.50 By 1892 the Geological Museum became known as the Perth Museum, acquiring ethnological, botanical and biological material purchased from the Swan River Mechanics Institute founded by Captain John Septimus Roe in 1851.51 An indigenous weapon collection was acquired from the Police Department.52 In 1897, when the fine arts collection was started, the museum 21 became the Western Australian Museum and Art Gallery with Bernard Woodward as director.

Indo-Fijians in rural areas live mostly in scattered homesteads rather than in villages. Instead, it became primarily a policy issue which marked the conceptual limits of the imagined community - the point where nation and state met to exclude - or, in the case of the Aborigines, to extinguish - the racially undesirable. It has also gone by the name Castellrosso, since the Italian occupation. While family closeness was judged as highly important, it was viewed as less crucial than language for the survival of Polish culture in Australia.

This presentation introduces Trove, the National Library’s newest discovery service, and provides information to understand Trove and it's most recently released features. In 1998 it had exports of $393 million and imports of $612 million. The nuptiality and fertility peaks of the 1950s generated a large birth cohort which is still working its way through middle age and generating echo effects which planning must adapt to. It is often attributed to the involuntary nature of linguistic belonging: a child does not decide which language will become her or his mother tongue, and one's mother tongue is often regarded as the most important depository of concepts, knowledge, social and cultural significance.

News of the 'Third World' countries are usually related to famine, natural disaster, violation of human rights, and domestic troubles which are greatly sensationalised. This need can explain why ideology itself was resorted to as the basis for an entirely new national identity. One of the darkest chapters of Australian history was the forced removal of Aboriginal children from their families. These were run by the National Records of Scotland (NRS) and the Northern Ireland Statistics and Research Agency (NISRA) respectively.

The varying evaluations of the family in the relation to ethnic language may be better understood by reference to the concept of �core values� as proposed by the authors in their earlier studies of minority cultures in Australia (Smolicz, 1981; 1993; Smolicz & Secombe, 1985a, 1985b, 1986, 1989 ). However, if the country is to benefit significantly from an export-led growth strategy it needs to carry on serious infrastructure improvements. The debate over where women's energies should be directed- to community- based projects or to national boards- still rages.

As we shall see, this is also one reason why multiculturalism as a government policy - i.e. a policy that actively cultural diversity - is ideologically incompatible with American national identity. In the previous decade, a new relationship between ethnic or migrant organisations and the political bureaucracy was forming, owing to the aforementioned restructuring. In this sense, the hyphenated American poses a potential danger: the danger that the particular would overwhelm the universal.

This achievement has persisted even in the face of increased unemployment and growing economic uncertainty during the last two decades. Some groups/countries of Asia are completely urban ( Hong Kong and Singapore ). The inflation of housing prices enables Sydney residents, especially on retirement, to sell their house and move to a better one elsewhere at the same price. It has been introduced into the Stirling Ranges near Perth where it threatens to become weedy. Could it be that the relevant knowledge is scarce in Australian universities, at least in the social sciences?
