A Book By Any Other Name? Towards a Social History of the Book in Aboriginal Australia, Penny Van Toorn , single work criticism
Van Toorn traces the development of European book culture and indigenous communication and writing in Australia.
(p. 5-20)
Colonial Violence and Forgotten Fiction, Rachael Weaver , single work criticism
The focus of this essay is 'on excavating short fiction built around representation of frontier conflict' (33). The short fictions of colonial frontier violence 'seem an appropriate means for reading otherwise unwritten events, and folding them into a Gothicised account of the colonial Australian scene' (51).

The Telling of Marmel's Story, Richard Pascal , single work criticism
The essay discusses Brimming Billabongs, 'the first Aboriginal "autobiography", albeit simulated, but also the first fictional narrative to rely upon an Aboriginal character as a focalising persona' (55).
(p. 54-68)
Ambivalence, Absence and Loss in David Malouf's Remembering Babylon, Jo Jones , single work criticism
'In this essay I aim to acknowledge the efficacy of the liberal humanist discourse in Remembering Babylon, whilst interrogating some of its more problematic aspects. In particular, I want to examine the implications of the notion of "shared suffering" by discussing Malouf's representation of non-indigenous trauma' (70).
