Researchers A/Prof Gregory Melleuish;
Brief description This project will provide the first comprehensive survey and analysis of conservative ideas in Australia from the nineteenth century until the present day. It will examine the different forms of conservatism in Australia, consider how conservatism in Australia has changed over time and plot the relationship between conservatism and liberalism in Australia. The project will provide a definitive account of Australian conservatism thereby allowing for a much more sophisticated and nuanced picture of the Australian 'Right' than is currently possible. This study will lead to a fuller and richer appreciation of both Australian conservatism and Australian political culture.
