The Australian magazine as material object and social network

Presented by ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences

This seminar brings together interdisciplinary academics and artists whose research engages with Australian magazines, to share and present works in progress. The seminar will involve short, informal presentations by researchers as well as larger roundtable discussions about new methodological approaches to researching Australian magazines. Our discussions will be broad and multidisciplinary, with particular focuses on the magazine as a material object, the ways that magazines created social networks, as well as the ongoing importance and relevance of researching magazine histories.

Speakers include Alison Alder, Helen Ennis, Sarah Galletly, Anna Johnston, Martyn Jolly, Amanda Laugesen, Kirra Minton, Paolo Magagnoli, Helen Stuckey, Eric Riddler, Kate Warren amongst others.
