people, place and social difference
A PHOTOGRAPHIC ESSAY. it is about an are here in Australia called Cabramatta. one of the essay requirements is to visit the area and take photos of people, shops, temples. i have done that and i have the photos on my phone and will send them to you later on.
the reason for the essay to be done about this area is because it has its population of different ethnicity 90% is Asian background.
The assignment asks you to critically reflect upon the impacts of ethnic residential concentration upon residents’
sense of belonging (including benefits and challenges) of a particular town centre (Cabramatta) in southwestern
Sydney. The town centre that you visit, Cabramatta, contains a number of different groups these groups
include the group that is the majority across Australia, as well as large concentrations of groups that are a
minority within Australia.
When you visit Cabramatta for your fieldwork you should start by identifying the impact of each ethnic group
that lives in the area on the landscape: what groups live in Cabramatta, and what evidence is there of these
How does ethnic residential concentration impact residents’ sense of belonging in Cabramatta? In your essay
critically reflect upon the benefits (e.g. cultural maintenance, provision of services, etc.) and challenges (e.g.
exclusion, stereotyping/prejudice, etc.) of ethnic residential concentration in Cabramatta. Utilise your field data
(photographs, field transect etc.) and make reference to relevant literature. Five (5) of your own photographs must
be included in the essay as evidence to support and illustrate your argument.
