Jacqueline Dutton traces the succession of French writing about Australia. She begins with the fictional travel writings and scientific studies stemming from the time of early French exploration of the Great South Land and continues through to the anthropology, education and journalism output of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
James Bradley tracks the history of some of Australia's best known literary magazines as well as some late twentieth and early twenty-first century offerings. He notes the growing online presence of these journals, suggesting that this presence 'contains a vision of the future of the literary magazine, one that is inextricably bound up in the development of devices such as the Kindle and Apple's as-yet-unseen e-reader'.
