Australia's Forgotten Culture: the Pulp Fiction Industry 1939-1959 (2008–2010)

Abstract:
Australia s Forgotten Culture examines a neglected aspect of 1940s and 50s popular culture. The project is divided into three broad, overlapping and interdependent parts: the compilation of an annotated bibliography of all pulp items produced between 1939 and 1959, a print cultures study of the international outreach of the books, and a cultural examination of pulp s contribution to Australian post-war entertainment. The findings will be published in _Australia's Forgotten Culture_, the third volume of the CI's trilogy on pulp fiction (_Pulp Covers_ and _Dirty Deeds_).
