AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Professor Gelder believes 'it's time researchers in the field sat down to talk about not just what they themselves are doing, but what Australian Literary Studies as a sub-discipline ought to do : to think precisely about "productivity" here (what it is, how it can be invoked, what directions it might take), and to think in turn about what kinds of productive relationships Australian Literary Studies can develop between authors and archives, and with other disciplinary approaches, the wider realms of print culture and other media, the national market (however that might be understood) as well as transnational markets and interests in the region (S.E. Asia, the Pacific) and elsewhere.'

Works about this Work

Transnational (Il)literacies : Reading the "New Chinese Literature in Australia" in China Wenche Ommundsen , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 25 no. 1 2011; (p. 83-89)
'Ommundsen talks about the transnational in Australian literary studies which was the lively critical debate at the time when her colleagues Alison Broinowski, Paul Sharrad and she in 2008 embarked on the ARC-supported project "Globalizing Australian literature: Asian Australian writing, Asian perspectives on Australian literature." As organizers of the 2008 conference of the Association for the Study of Australian Literature conference, the Wollongong team decided to focus on this articulation between the transnational/global and the national in Australian literary studies, hoping that the papers would shed further light on these debates, at the same time enriching the theoretical arguments underpinning their own project.'
