CHCDIV001 STUDENT WORKBOOK V1.0 Part 2A Value and respect diversity and inclusiveness across all areas of work. Answer the following questions in your own handwriting in the spaces provided. 1. The migration of Italians to Australia has left an enduring legacy. This legacy includes construction, food, drinks, sports and clothes. In 500 words, provide examples of that legacy. Reference or footnote the sources of information that you use. Many Italians started to come to the cane fields of Northern Queensland as indentured workers in the late 1800’s. Although conditions were harsh – wages were low and the workers had to work long hours in the ghastly heat – this is one of the biggest Italian communities in the country because most stayed in Australia, and eventually developed their own farms. Several Italians also migrated to Australia in the 1920’s, but the true surge began after the Second World War when economic conditions were bad in Italy but better in Australia. A large section worked on the Snowy Mountains Scheme. They lived and worked in the cities, started wineries, farmed tobacco, and cut the sugar cane. This is when they began to influence Australian life and culture. According to the article, ‘Italian Australians Trailblazers for Multiculturalism’ by Dr. Laura Bald Assar in Multicultural Communities Online: “It is today hard to believe that garlic was once an unknown and highly suspicious food, that olive oil was only available from chemists in small glass bottles for medicinal purposes, that bread was prized for its ability to be cut in thin square slices, that cheese came in silver paper and melted into slippery blobs when cooked, that pasta was not a familiar dish, that wine was considered a foreign beverage for foreigners and that tea was a far more popular drink than coffee.” (cf. Baldassar and Pesman 2004). Now Italian restaurants can be found everywhere, even in the suburbs. (There is a good one near where I live.) Cappuccinos are a favourite beverage of Australians and Australians love to eat pasta and drink wine. Italians played a big role in introducing Australians to wine and Italian-style wines, such as log rein, barber, and sangiovese are increasingly popular. They also helped to make the ‘coffee culture’ popular and many coffee brands in Australia have Italian origins and many different types of coffee are available at coffee shops and in the supermarkets. Australians are also beginning to realize the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet, based as it is on delicious olive oil, salads, pasta and wine. The Italian influence on Australian life has been enormous and it is almost too difficult to categorize it.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
