AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Andrew Hassam suggests that the future of Australian Studies in India 'depends not so much on studying legendary figures such as Ned Kelly and Don Bradman as expressions of a unique Australian character as on investigating how, paradoxically, such legends have travelled internationally and found new resonances locally'. (p.55)

    y separately published work icon Australia and India : Convergences and Divergences S. K. Sareen (editor), New Delhi : Mantra Books , 2010 Z1721487 2010 anthology criticism .Explores various comparable facets of Australian and Indian cultures, societies, histories and literatures. The book is a collection of twelve papers presented at the Third International Conference of the Indian Association for the Study of Australia (IASA) held in Pune in January 2006. Contributions from academicians [...] present "convergences and divergences" as a vital category in understanding Australia and India, especially in the post-globalised world where there has been a considerable attempt by the respective governments and, more importantly, the people at large, to seek a meeting point. The writers assimilate the realities of teaching Australian literature and culture in India, the lived experience in the two countries, and the cultural exchanges between their peoples, to express the viability of the study of Australia and India.'
