    Supplementary Texts:

    - Australians on the Western Front 1914-1918
    - Australians on the Western Front 1914-1918 : Home

    - Alexander: Director's Cut

    Any thoughts/criticisms would be appreciated
    isn't it bad to use a website as a related text for a website???

    Re: Supplementary Texts For History & Memory

    I was just wondering if 'Shutter Island' would be a good related text for 'The Fiftieth Gate', anyone have any thoughts?

    Re: Supplementary Texts For History & Memory

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, but I suppose if I look at what the doctors were saying as the 'facts' or history, I could look at it that way? It doesn't really matter because I would only be using this as a second text if we have to because I already have a related text.

    Our core text for History and Memory is The True History of the Kelly Gang and my related text is Titanic.

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    we're studying Denise Levertov as our prescribed text. i found 'I was only 19' by Redgum real useful! fairly simple to contrast and link together. hope this is a start yo

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    A couple of good texts are The Chaser's Eulogy song, and possibly the film 'The Insider'. The Insider could also possibly fit in with the Conflicting perpectives module.

    I did H&M(The Queen), and for related texts, used the guardian's obituary of steve irwin, and redgum's "I was only 19".

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    Has anyone used Saving Private Ryan as a related text? I need some pointers as to what kind of things to look for in relation to history and memory. We're studying the Smithsonian Website, by the way.

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    My class are doing the Smithsonian 9/11 Bearing Witess to History website, Extremely Loud and Increadibly Close (the movie) and the ABC Black Saturday Website which are all about memorial which is pretty much the mashing of history and memory in itself so...
    But I'm having mad difficulty with the whole topic. Its has just completely baffled me.

    Re: History & Memory: Related Texts

    Has anyone thought of using Palestinian memoirs/novels as related texts for 50th Gate? Not sure if the irony would be appreciated by some markers...
