Turning the Tide: Indigenous Australian Writers and Thinkers (EDSW)
A potentially explosive event on the state of Indigenous Australian literature. Peter Minter leads a discussion with Lionel Fogarty, Jeanine Leane and Melissa Lucashenko. These searingly talented writers read from their work and consider: Does being a writer construct identity, indigenous or otherwise? Is their writing political and should it be? They’ll throw a collective molotov cocktail of ideas into the ‘canon’ and decide if it has been hamstrung by all or some of these notions.
Presented with the Faculty of Education & Social Work, the University of Sydney.
