AustLit and BlackWords—Platforms for Storying Research

Presented by Kerry Kilner and the AustLit team

Date: Friday 13 September, 2019
Time: 3:00pm-4:00pm
Location: Digital Learning Space (Room 224, Level 2), Joyce Ackroyd Building (#37) 


This seminar will focus on AustLit’s evolving status as a platform for research, teaching, and engagement. It will discuss the ways our interactions with communities of interest inside and beyond the university sector has allowed us to develop methods of storying research and sharing ownership. AustLit has also claimed an important role in publishing – both older literary works and contemporary publications of creative and critical writing. Meanwhile its engagement with student- or academic-led publishing initiatives has led it in a new direction within the publishing industry. This paper will bring colleagues up to date with recent projects, publications, and strategies, discussing where AustLit is aiming to go over the next few years.
