AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This online exhibition looks at Australian field theatres (also known as concert parties), which were variety-based troupes established by allied military forces during the World War I as a means of boosting moral and relieving monotony. Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) field theatres were organised by various divisions in Europe, North Africa and the United Kingdom between late 1916 and into the immediate post-war period.

    AustLit: The Australian Literature Resource is a web-accessible database providing authoritative information on creative and critical Australian literary works, authors and organisations.

    The AustLit team, which is distributed around Australia at participating universities and libraries, indexes and describes Australia-identified literature published in a range of print and electronic sources. It also makes available selected critical articles and creative writing in full text.

    AustLit also supports specialist research across a wide field of interests in Australian literary, print, and storytelling history.

    AustLit was established in 2000. Since 2002 AustLit has been led by The University of Queensland and since 2014 most of the indexing work and content development has been undertaken there.
