AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Juniper Ellis argues: 'If Oceania properly includes Australia, an Australia that emerges anew when seen in the context of this long-standing Pacific panorama, then Australian post-coloniality must be comprised not only of local and national forces but also of regional ones' (155). Ellis reads the work of Albert Wendt, Sia Figiel, Vilsoni Hereniko and John Kasaipwalova for connections to and reflections on Australia.

    'The contemporary study of Australian literature, as befitting that of a country that has been at the forefront of postcolonial studies, is a highly self-conscious and theoreticised enterprise, carried on now by academics across the globe and not just by Australians concerned to privilege a discourse of national assertion and specificity, as used to be the case. This volume accordingly deals with issues such as the tensions between literary and cultural studies, indigenous autobiography, postcolonial nostalgia, masculinity, the placing of Australia in the Pacific and in Asia, the uses of Australian literature in the United States, and includes the considerations of such widely-studied authors as Mudrooroo, Peter Carey and Patrick White.'
