CFP: Republics of Letters: Literary Communities in Australia

Republics of Letters: Literary Communities in Australia
Australian-United States Intellectual Histories
A Symposium hosted by Australian Literature at the University of Sydney
January 13 – 14, 2011

Convenors: Dr Peter Kirkpatrick and Prof. Robert Dixon

“In what ways do writing and reading generate forms of community in Australia? What roles might literature and the literary have in the formation of both publics and counterpublics? This symposium explores a variety of collective relationships among writers, readers and texts, with an emphasis on processes of literary sociability that elide or exceed the “imagined community” of the nation.”

Limited funds are available for postgraduate travel.
