Dear prospective Contributors,

I am pulling together an Edited Collection called International Perspectives on Australian Fiction and I would like to invite you to consider submitting one or more chapters

The abstract/call for the Collection is here:

This volume will discuss the state of Australian Literary Studies abroad and international perspectives on Australian fiction through new interdisciplinary approaches. Topics will include the globalisation of Australian fiction, the translating and reception of Australian literary texts, the local publishing industries participating in the dissemination Australian literature, inter alia.

Jean-François Vernay is the author of four academic books. The latest are A Brief Take on the Australian Novel (Wakefield Press, 2016), The Seduction of Fiction: A Plea for Putting Emotions Back into Literary Interpretation (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016) and its sequel: La Séduction de la fiction (Hermann, 2019).

A Chapter should normally be no longer than 6000 words, and should be original and previously unpublished. If the work has already been published (as a journal article, or in conference proceedings, for example), the Publisher will require evidence that permission to be re-published has been granted.

Kind regards,
