AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This thesis explores how discourses of multiculturalism and postcolonialism can be used to interpret representations / constructions of Asian-Australians, Asia(ns) and Australia(ns) in contemporary Asia-Australia literature. It seeks to examine how the continual severing, realignment and recombination of multicultural and postcolonial discourses have influence Asian-Australian writings, and briefly considers the politics of publishing. In addition, it undertakes a critical analysis of the discursive processes by which objects and identities are formed or given meaning in contemporary Australian literature by writers of Asian ancestry.
