Must one country's postmodernism look the same as another's? Must one hemisphere's? Concentrating upon works written since 1988, this course looks at some of the early texts of Australian postmodernism, the domestic and international contexts in which they took seed, and how Australian postmodernism has subsequently developed, asking as it does so whether it has any distinguishing features, trying to explain what these might be, and how they might have come about.
