Students will require access to e-mail and have internet access to UConnect for this course.
This course surveys selected novels by celebrated Australian writers published between 1975-2010. Through detailed exploration of the works the course will examine the changing forms and functions of the literary estate. It will direct particular attention to the way in which these books intervene in contemporary debates about the sources, influences, character and tensions in the Australian social contract. It will also study the careers and reputations of a number of writers and develop a methodology for assessing their status within a transnational literary field.
