Catalan-Australian Identities: a Melburnian Journey

Pompeu Casanovas Romeu, Marta Poblet Balcell

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


What does adopting an Australian identity mean? This is a personal journey, as we come from a Catalan background. It is a reflection on contemporary Melbourne life, paying special attention to immigration waves and ways of life in our new country. However, to integrate experiences and everyday memories into a general framework, we will offer a preliminary comparative scheme between both cultures. We will explore the system of cultural reproduction, differential multiculturality, the emergence of political rights, and the institutional creation of cultural and political identities in both countries.
