AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The article considers Tim Winton’s fiction in terms of its cross- and transcultural character. Despite the fact that local Australian settings permeate the writer’s narratives, Winton creates an imaginary space that is both local and transnational in terms of its quality of the domestic culture, which Winton extends beyond its original field of practice. Winton achieves the transcultural quality of his fiction through transgressions and boundary breaking that are possible due to his frequent reworking of the traditional Australian themes and concepts of the unknown, supernatural, mystical, numinous and sacred, exploitation of leitmotifs of journey, transit and in-betweenness, use of cross-cultural symbols as well as various utopian and dystopian topoi such as Arcadia and Heimat.'

    'The new issue of JEASA partly thematizes the 2015 EASA conference organized by the University of Pannonia in Veszprém, Hungary. The theme of the conference, "Australia as Topos: The Transformation of Australian Studies," is reflected in several articles in this issue, particularly in those centered on mediating Australia for European audience and/or on "European" and transnational readings of contemporary Australian literature. ' (Martina Horakova Journal of the European Association for Studies of Australia (JEASA), Vol.7 No.2, 2016.)
