    Look at the Lake
    Brophy, K (Puncher & Wattmann, 2018-05-08)
    This is a book about deep history and living in the moment; beauty and poverty; comic discovery and tragic loss. Kevin Brophy writes about people and place like no-one else. Research Statement: This work is in the field of Creative Writing (FOR 190402). its contexts are multiple and complex. They are: poetry by white writers about Aboriginal Australia, poetry on the desert landscape of Australia, on isolation in the outback, and on life in an Aboriginal community. The research aim is to make a book of poems that will work powerfully in an aesthetic and linguistic sense while exposing intimately a truthful picture of how it is to live in a desert landscape and a remote Aboriginal community. There has never been such a book of poems written in Australia, produced through negotiation with the local people of the community. The new knowledge this book aims to provide is to stand as a test of whether it is possible to write truthfully, powerfully, intimately and respectfully about being a white person in an Aboriginal community and environment. The publication of these poems by an important Press and favourable critical reception in Australian Book Review, the Australian and the Australian Poetry Review are all evidence of excellence.

    Medieval Literature and Social Politics: Studies of Cultures and Their Contexts
    Knight, S (Routledge, 2021-03-02)
    Medieval Literature and Social Politics brings together seventeen articles by literary historian Stephen Knight. The book primarily focuses on the social and political meaning of medieval literature, in the past and the present. It provides an account of how early heroic texts relate to the issues surrounding leadership and conflict in Wales, France and England, and how the myth of the Grail and the French reworking of Celtic stories relate to contemporary society and its concerns. Further chapters examine Chaucer's readings of his social world, the medieval reworkings of the Arthur and Merlin myths, and the popular social statements in ballads and other literary forms. The concluding chapters examine the Anglo-nationalist `Arctic Arthur', and the ways in which Arthur, Merlin and Robin Hood can be treated in terms of modern studies of the history of emotions and the environment. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of medieval Europe, as well as those interested in social and political history, medieval literature and modern medievalism.

    Melbourne Modern European Art and Design at RMIT Since 1945
    Eckett, J ; Edquist, H ; Eckett, J ; Edquist, H (RMIT Gallery, 2019)
    Melbourne Modern celebrates the contribution of European émigré artists, architects and designers who taught at RMIT after 1945. It surveys the work of Viennese architects, German, Czech and Baltic sculptors and silversmiths, and Dutch and British designers. It also includes migrants who arrived in Australia as children and Australian-born artists whose formative experiences in Europe influence their teaching. Collectively their stories illuminate RMIT’s model of inclusion. The profound impact of émigré teaching on the new pedagogy that developed in the 1950s through the 1970s placed the RMIT School of Art and Applied Art at the forefront of Australian art and design education. Melbourne Modern examines the legacy of this rich and educational experiment today.

    The Frankfurt Book Fair and Bestseller Business
    Driscoll, E ; Squires, C (Cambridge University Press, 2020)
    The Frankfurt Book Fair is the leading global industry venue for rights sales, facilitating business-to-buzzness deals and international networks. In this book, we pursue an Ullapoolist approach to excavate beneath the production of bestsellers at the Fair. Our investigation involved three consecutive years of fieldwork (2017-2019) including interviews and autoethnographic, arts-informed interventions. The book argues that buzz at the Fair exists in two states: as market-ready media reports and partial, lived experiences linked to mood. The physical structures and absences of the Fair enact its power relations and direct the flow of books and buzz. Further, the Fair is not only a site for commercial exchange but a carnival of sorts, marked by disruptive historical events and problematic socio-political dynamics. Key themes emerging from the book are the presence of excess, the pseudo(neo)liberal self-satisfaction of book culture, and the interplay of optimism and pessimism in contemporary publishing.
