AustLit Phase Three: Transforming the study of Australian Literature through a collaborative e-Research environment (2009–2010)

Abstract:
The AusLit consortium is a nation-wide collaboration that aims to create and deliver unique research services to humanities scholars of Australian narrative cultures. In 2009, the team of outstanding researchers will examine the place of periodical publications in the dissemination of literature and literary-critical writing across the colonies, the states and territories, and the nation to the mid 20th century. It will develop new data and text-based content for the study of early Australian children's literature, expanding access to rare and fragile works by delivering them digitally, and will deepen the significant engagement with indigenous communities through research into Elders' storytelling activities in the maintenance of culture.
