A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature

La république des lettres —
A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature

As many of you are aware, A Companion to Australian Aboriginal Literature,
will be released shortly. (The official release date is 1 August, 2013,
but the book is ahead of schedule and will be released any day now.)

Up until the release of this book there has been no comprehensive critical
companion that contextualizes the Aboriginal canon for scholars,
researchers, students, and general readers. This international collection
of eleven original essays discusses crucial aspects of Australian
Aboriginal literature and traces the development of Aboriginal literacy
from the oral tradition up until today. The contributors include Katrin
Althans, Maryrose Casey, Danica Cerce, Stuart Cooke, Paula Anca Farca,
Michael R. Griffiths, Oliver Haag, Martina Horakova, Jennifer Jones,
Andrew King, Jeanine Leane, and Theodore F. Sheckels. Nicholas Jose wrote
the companion¹s foreword, Peter Minter wrote a review of the book that
appears on the book¹s back cover, and young Indigenous artist, Chern¹ee
Sutton¹s artwork adorns the book¹s cover.

As the companion¹s editor, I am thrilled with the final product and I hope
you will be, too.There are various venues around the world where the book is currently
being sold or will be sold. I will list a few links here to assist you.
