‘The Elephant Has Left the Room’: Jacket Magazine and the Internet John Tranter , 2012 single work autobiography
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 12 no. 1 2012;
'Australian poet John Tranter trained in all aspects of publishing, from hand-lettering to editing, from litho platemaking to screen printing, and developed an early familiarity with computers. The development of the Internet in the 1990s found him armed with a formidable array of skills. He published the free international Internet-only magazine Jacket single-handed in 1997. Jacket quickly grew to become the most widely read and highly respected literary magazine ever published from Australia. In late 2010 John Tranter gave it to the University of Pennsylvania, where it continues to flourish. This memoir traces John Tranter's publication of literary materials on the Internet including the technical and literary problems faced by Jacket, and outlines the many other projects that resulted in the Internet publication of over fifty thousand mostly Australian poems, articles, reviews, interviews and photographs.'

Identity as Radical Alterity : Critiques of Eurocentrism, Coloniality, and Subjectivity in Contemporary Australian and Latin American Poetry Bridie McCarthy , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 24 no. 2 2010; (p. 189-197)

'How to 'abandon Europe'? The oxymoronic quest to semantically or ideologically discard the signs of that which signifies modern thought and historical rationality in Europe's colonies is dismissed by Rama as futile. However, when the postcolonial relations of 'peripheries' to the European 'center' are examined the engagements between t he colonies and Europe are not characterized by straightforwardness either. While complete abandonment may not be possible, neither is complete affiliation. As such, postcoloniality can still be seen as a luminal state in its ambivalent positioning between what might be seen as originary Europe and a derivative periphery.

This article takes the periphery as a transnational, multilingual space, and it takes postcoloniality beyond the Anglosphere. It tests the hypothesis that there are postcolonial legacies shared across the Global South. Of central importance here is how postcoloniality is understood in Australia and Latin America, and how this is communicated in contemporary poetry pensamiento latinoamericano ['Latin American thought'].'
