Allegra Welsh: The Butterfly Effect

Allegra Welsh has always enjoyed studying and learning humanities and has most enjoyed learning about social justice and human rights in the Aboriginal Studies course.

Her Major Work was an “investigation into the lasting effects of colonial attitudes throughout history on contemporary Australian society.”

“The main topics discussed were the impacts of early colonisation on Aboriginal people, government policies, legislation and their impacts on Aboriginal people, legal decisions and protests and their impact on Aboriginal people, and an insight into Australian society today,” Allegra said.

“To complete it I had to do a lot of research, whatever consultation I could find given the circumstances, and write close to 20,000 words.”
