Clash of cultures is defined as “a conflict arising from the interaction of people with different cultural values.”
It is a something that we have or will all face at some point. Difference in culture is a circumstance that causes many problems in our society today, as well as in the ancient past.
The graphic novel Terra Australis debates the theme of culture clash. The novel takes place in Australia and here we meet “the white men” on the great ship and “the dark men” of the woods.
A parallel is drawn between the two cultures. Though the purposes for their actions are undoubtedly different, both the white and the black men hurt their own people throughout the novel, leaving us with the impression that the two cultures might not be so different after all.
