Reading Down Under: Australian Literary Studies Reader

Amit Sarwal (Editor) Reema Sarwal (Editor)
Synopsis This first Reader on Australian studies from India not only investigates this central question but explores many other facets of Australian literature and especially Australian cross-cultural relationships with India and Asia. Taking a broad view of what Australian literature is, this Reader explores the dimensions of Australian literature (national, Aboriginal, multicultural, ecocritical, postcolonial, modernist, comparative, feminist, and popular) in its varied genres of drama, poetry, autobiography, explores' journals, short stories, literature of war, travel writing, Anglo-Indian fiction, diasporic writing, mainstream novel, nature writing, children's literature, romance, science fiction, gothic literature, horror, crime fiction, queer writing, and humour. Each paper in this Reader presents different ways of "reading down under" and "performing Australianness". Juxtaposing the varied critical perspectives of nearly 60 international critics this Reader hopes to create a constructive dialogue in the fight against the dominance of an Anglo-American academic approach.
