AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'I remember all those things, like magic moths with rainbow wings and spider webs with pearly dew, but the memory I love most is when I was a little boy and used to play with my friend Mary Kangaroo... A celebration of a special friendship, Me and Mary Kangaroo is a story for all ages, a lyrical, moving tale to be shared again and again.' (Source: Publisher's blurb)

— Appears in: Australian Aboriginal Studies , no. 1 2011; (p. 51-64)

'The author discusses the overseas marketing of translated Aboriginal literature which has received scant scholarly attention. The paper examines three examples of Aboriginal literature that have been translated into German and produced as audiobooks by two Austrian publishers...this paper focuses on the translation and promotion of these audiobooks by their Austrian publishers and argues that an understanding of the representation of Aboriginal people in these audiobooks is informed by different aspects of translation and advertisement as well as the format of the medium itself' (Source: Abstract).
