The sprawl that ate Australia on 3.2.
The sprawl that ate Australia on 3.2.

Or how the Howard era's expansive cultures of McMansions, urban sprawl, market capitalism and religious fervour forged the leitkultur of a 21st century Australia still struggling within its Asian skin. Taken from the anti-communist witch-hunts of cold war America, the idea of ‚unAustralian' became a potent silencer during the final years of the Howard regime. Who and what is unAustralian, and where does 'diversity', 'tolerance' and 'acceptance' begin and end in the trenches of suburbia? And does authencity of such intent matter anyway?

Kean Wong is a Berlin-based writer and art critic who spent two years reporting on the final years of the Howard government for the authoritative Financial Review newspaper. He also pioneered investigative journalism in Malaysia and has worked in radio and newspaper reporting around Australia. He contributes to public debate as an intellectual ressource person on issues of popular culture, music, ethnic conflicts and identities, youth cultures and Islam.
