Edward A. Clark Center for Australian & New Zealand Studies
Research Unit Profile
The Clark Center was created during Australia's 1988 Bicentenary to make ties between UT-Austin and Australia (which dated back to the World War II period) more concrete. The Center conducts a wide array of research studies, many in collaboration with Australian and New Zealand scholars, that focus on the antipodean countries and their relations with the U.S.: political and legal issues and institutions; trade and related economic issues; immigration and multiculturalism; issues of ethnicity, race, and gender; ecology and energy questions; the histories, literatures, film and art of Australia and New Zealand.
