About this book

This book is the second scholarly collection of its kind, bringing together long-obscured histories to discuss Australia’s cultural, social and political diversity in greater depth. The history of Australia’s print media reveals extensive evidence for the nation’s global connectedness, from the colonial period through to the present day; and these connections are never more apparent than through the study of the migrant and minority press. In particular, a fascinating and complex picture of Australia’s long-term transnational ties emerges from examining the smaller enterprises initiated by individuals and communities of the distant and more recent past. Therein, one gains access to the authentic voices of minority groups which challenged the dominant experiences, patterns, and debates that have shaped Australian society and culture. With contributors taking various approaches to the print ventures of Aboriginal Australians, the Chinese, feminists, the French, Germans, Italians, scientific publishing, and ethnic media, this book enhances our knowledge of Australia’s Indigenous, migrant and minority cultural heritage and cultural diversity.
