‘Migrant Nation: Australian Culture, Society and Identity’

Congratulations to Paul Longley Arthur, editor of the recently published Migrant Nation: Australian Culture, Society and Identity, a collection that focuses on particular historical blind spots by telling stories of individuals and groups that did not fit the favoured identity mould. The essays in this book work within the gap between Australian image and experience and offer fresh insights into the ‘other’ side of identity construction. Contributors include Paul Longley Arthur, Peter Read, Anna Haebich, Alison Ravenscroft, Kerreen Ely-Harper, Kate Bagnall, Jack Bowers, Yuriko Nagata, Jayne Persian, Katarzyna Kwapisz Williams, Michael Jacklin and Karen Fox.
