AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This article examines the work of Ernestine Hill (1899–1972), an Australian journalist, travel writer, and broadcaster. It begins by elaborating some of the ways in which Hill's life and work have been given scholarly treatment previously, and then it proposes a reading of her work in terms of the themes of race and belonging—in particular, the relationship between whiteness and indigeneity in her written depictions of Australia's far north. The article draws upon the conceptual framework developed by Terry Goldie and Penelope Ingram to read Hill's collection of travel pieces,The Great Australian Loneliness (1937), and her historical writing in The Territory (1951).'
