Un/making Sexuality: Such Is Life and the Observant Queer Reader, Damien Barlow , single work criticism

'I want to propose that the incertitudes of Furphy's magnum opus provide the observant queer reader with an arousing focus on the late-nineteenth-century making of "sexuality" as a new regulatory system of sexual organisation. In advocating an engagement between Such is Life and queer theory, I want to ask, how does Furphy represent sexuality in Such is Life? and what is the analytical purchase provided by a queer reading of the text?'

Examines the ways in which limitations of traditional print bibliography, such as printing costs and space, can be overcome in the electronic environment, discussing how the expanded scope for scholarly cross-referencing and annotation and new data models implemented by the AustLit Gateway take bibliography a step further than other literary databases, making possible a 'multi-dimensional' approach to the recording of bibliographic details and posing fresh challenges for the contextualising of Australian literary works.
