AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The essay looks at the extent to which Australian literature is part of transnational communication networks that are generally accepted as being part of the "global condition" of the late-capitalist world. Without wishing to deny that globalization exists, the essay suggests that much of the rhetoric surrounding it is "globaloney", and that contemporary debates about the globalization of Australian literature are not immune. The essay also looks at the "globaloney" underlying continuing debates about expatriation and cultural nationalism, using specific examples drawn from the work of Peter Carey and Germaine Greer.'
