Things make sense

I am and have been studying four different subjects in four different areas here in Townsville. Indigenous Australian Worldviews, Globalisation: Historical Perspectives, Culture, Knowledge & Environment, Government and Politics in developing Areas, in other words, Indigenous studies, history, anthropology and politics. However, all of these in a very nice way fit really good together.

The broadness of the subjects really make them interconnect and overlap each other in various areas. Just taking one example, the Aborigines and Aboriginal culture. This is the central part of my Indigenous studies, but it also is part of my Globalisation class, where the affects of globalisation is discussed regarding to the Aborigines and their way of life. The same can be said my anthropological course where the studies of Indigenous knowledge compared to the westernised science clash. it might not be as clear connection to my policy class, but there are a lot of similarities in how politics work in a lot of developing areas just as it did in Australian history.

With this I just want to say that even though some of these subjects not really are something I find really interesting, they have all together given me knowledge about things I would never had been able to learn anywhere else, and for that I am grateful.
