AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The first part of this essay contextualises that community-based discussion by providing analysis and interpretation of publishing trends, with a particular focus on novels and anthologies, and how they were positioned so centrally in community-based commentary. The second part complements and extends the analysis done in part one, reporting new quantitative research on trends in the publishing of Australian gay and lesbian writing during the period 1995-2001. The quantitative research adds descriptive dimensions to the analysis of the relations between the writing and various kinds of publishing, and requires, as a result, a reconfiguration of the field under discussion. In combination with the cultural analysis, it suggests future research needs to take into account what was and is happening in publishing' (43).
