The queer(y)ing of Australian public culture discourse: activism, rights discourse and survival strategies

By Baden Offord


Creative Nation is the first Reader on Australian Cinema and Cultural Studies published in India that introduces Australian films (historical, contemporary, art house, short, digital and documentary) as well as cultural texts (pop and hip hop, popular theatre, film music, Aboriginal songs and music, mass art, queer and photographic culture) for an international scholarship in order to broaden Australian studies in nations that have recently begun to explore this field, especially in Asia. The chapters presented in this Reader analyse dynamic subject matter such as family, moral values, cultural hybridity, Asian-Australian dialogues, gender and racial stereotypes, the representation of Australianness, Indigenous Australia, national symbols, mythology, and the representation of outback, suburban and metropolitan spaces in Australian cinema and culture in the broad context of globalization and international co-production.--Book jacket
