'Imagined Landscapes teams geocritical analysis with digital visualization techniques to map and interrogate films, novels, and plays in which space and place figure prominently. Drawing upon A Cultural Atlas of Australia, a database-driven interactive digital map that can be used to identify patterns of representation in Australia’s cultural landscape, the book presents an integrated perspective on the translation of space across narrative forms and pioneers new ways of seeing and understanding landscape. It offers fresh insights on cultural topography and spatial history by examining the technical and conceptual challenges of georeferencing fictional and fictionalized places in narratives. Among the items discussed are Wake in Fright, a novel by Kenneth Cook, adapted iconically to the screen and recently onto the stage; the Australian North as a mythic space; spatial and temporal narrative shifts in retellings of the story of Alexander Pearce, a convict who gained notoriety for resorting to cannibalism after escaping from a remote Tasmanian penal colony; travel narratives and road movies set in Western Australia; and the challenges and spatial politics of mapping spaces for which there are no coordinates.'

1 y separately published work icon Jane Campion : Authorship and Personal Cinema Alistair Fox , Bloomington : Indiana University Press , 2011 Z1883848 2011 single work biography 'Alistair Fox explores the dynamics of the creative process involved in cinematic representation in the films of Jane Campion, one of the most highly regarded of contemporary filmmakers. Utilizing a wealth of new material -- including interviews with Campion and her sister and personal writings of her mother -- Fox traces the connections between the filmmaker's complex background and the thematic preoccupations of her films, from her earliest short, Peel, to 2009's Bright Star. He establishes how Campion's deep investment in family relationships informs her aesthetic strategies, revealed in everything from the handling of shots and lighting, to the complex system of symbolic images repeated from one film to the next.'

'From the islands, the coast, and the far harsh inland of northern Australia they cane, the young Aborigines who while training as teachers at Kormilda College in Darwin conceived and created this book of myths and legends of their own peoples.'

'Depicted here in brilliant, glowing colours and lucidly simple in expression, these tales are part of the rich heritage of the Aboriginal peoples and one which all the young in heart are now privileged to share...'

Djurgurba: Tales from the Spirit Time, written and illustrated wholly by Aborigines whose proud traditions it records, brings together myths and legends from widespriead areas and peoples. It is a happy and unique achievement.' (Source: The Publishers, title page verso)
