    Australia has had five different Prime Ministers in five years, and now a big election is just weeks away. What in the world is a double dissolution, anyway? There's never been a more exciting time to follow politics Down Under. This class will give you an overview of the structure, major personalities, and big-ticket issues in Australian politics today. The cast of characters would make a great movie. This is not your average afternoon C-SPAN stuff. Don’t fret if you have zero background on Australia; the country is facing the same big policy issues we are here, including same-sex marriage, immigration, and climate change. We’ll investigate how these issues play out in a different national context. This class is for the globally-minded, or at least those that like to pretend they are. At the end, you will be able to talk with your Aussie friends about more than Crocodile Dundee and the Hemsworth brothers.
