International Australian Literary Cultures

Back to search results

This project aims to develop and support new research into Australia's global literary contexts. It directs attention to literature that addresses Australian migration, dislocation, expatriation and the exchange of goods, practices and ideas. It asks what literature can tell us about the pressing matter of Australia's place in the world, specifically the displacements and resistances of Australia's Indigenous peoples and cultures, our ongoing relations with peoples and cultures of Oceania and the Asia-Pacific, and our relations with distant and diverse cultures and locations. It also focuses on the importance of translation as a defining modality of Australian literary culture.
