1 Travelling with Veronica Susan Ballyn , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Coolabah , no. 22 2017; (p. 6-9)

'I met Veronica in 1988 on my first trip to Australia. I had admired her as an academic since my undergraduate days but had no idea what was in store for me once I met her. Over the decades we met in places across the world and in Spain and each meeting was unique, an intellectual uplift and more than often an absolute hoot when we travelled together. In paying tribute to Veronica I would like to write about some of the incredible and on one occasion hair-raising, trips we shared.'

— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 14 no. 4 2014;
'1990—the exchange agreement between La Trobe University and Barcelona University had just been signed. I, as Co-ordinator on the Barcelona side, was on my first visit to La Trobe. At the time I knew only four people John Barnes and Lucy Frost from English, Robert Archer and Lilit Thwaites from Spanish. As part of my visit, a drinks party was held for me by the English Department and people from other areas of the University also attended. I was somewhat bemused at the attention I was getting as part of this strange but exciting set up in Barcelona where Australian Studies was being taught. I was constantly asked not only at La Trobe but anywhere I went in Australia: ‘Australian Studies in Barcelona. Why?’ The answer was always one that surprised. Prof. Doireann MacDermott had introduced what was then called Commonwealth Studies onto the Syllabus in Barcelona in the late sixties and early seventies. Indeed, Barcelona University was the first University outside the United Kingdom to have such studies on offer to its undergraduates.' (Author's introduction)
