Sažetak
After the introduction of the system of immigration quotas in the United States in 1921 and 1924, there was a rise in the number of immigrants arriving in Australia from Southern Europe. The response to this increase was one of great caution. The dominant public attitude was that Australia ought to remain primarily British, not only 'white'. The press had an important role in the formation of this view and the representation of immigrants in newspapers had a profound impact on how they were perceived, as well as on policymaking subsequently. This paper deals with different aspects of racial and ethnic relations in Australia in the mid-1920s through an examination of press reports on Southern European immigrants. The goal is to establish whether it is possible to talk about an atmosphere of moral panic with far-reaching consequences including discrimination towards immigrants and racism in everyday life.
