AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Peril is a new Asian-Australian website designed to build a critical mass of Asian-Australian art and cultural concerns. Our ambition is to have two core issues a year on the site with a forum board for people to chat and comment. Why Peril? From the so called Yellow Peril that labelled the wave of Chinese immigration in the 19th century. We are perilious and take risks but not in the way that the Pauline Hansons of the world think!'

Ask and Ye Shall Receive - 'Family Law' Ep 2, Simon Chan , single work review
— Review of The Family Law Benjamin Law , Marieke Hardy , Kirsty Fisher , Lawrence Leung , 2016 series - publisher film/TV ;

'Missed out on your fix of family friendly television madness? SBS on demand has you hooked up for watching, and guest me-viewer, Simon Chan has you hooked up for the very personal experience of sitting down to experience The Family Law.

We asked Simon for a “me-view”, i.e. what does a creative, smart, Asian Australian see when they connect with art/culture that is (at last, some might say) directly connecting with them as an audience' (preliminary blurb).

Works about this Work

Defying the Moment Beejay Silcox , 2018 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Book Review , April no. 400 2018; (p. 14, 16-17, 19)

'Moments began as medieval measures, the time it took for a sundial’s blade of shadow to shift – ninety seconds or so, depending on the season. A slice of sunlight. A moment now carries cultural as well as temporal weight. A slice of spotlight. Increasingly, we speak of our present as a moment, as if its minutes are sprung like an ontological mousetrap, primed to snap. As Sam Anderson writes in The New York Times: ‘No nexus of events is too large or heterogeneous – no geopolitical weather too swirlingly turbulent – to avoid being reduced to the shorthand of the moment.’ (Introduction)

Who Is Lobbying For Migrant Writers? Michelle Cahill , 2015 single work essay
— Appears in: Sydney Review of Books , November 2015;
Australian Literary Journals : Virtual and Social Benjamin Laird , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Cordite Poetry Review , December vol. 36 no. 2011;
'Twenty years ago, if you published a quarterly literary journal, you could be certain what that meant: four issues a year. In 2003, when Anna Hedigan wrote her overview of journals and their web presence not much had changed. The publishers' attitude to the online space was that it was essentially a placeholder for the print journal.

Genevieve Tucker's review four years later suggested many of the journals were becoming more sophisticated, with more content online and greater interest in design. Relevant to the 2007 review, RMIT publishing announced in September that it had partnered to "produce a comprehensive digital archive of Australia's most iconic literary and cultural journals". This initiative will provide full archives for a number of Australian literary journals.' (Author's introduction)
