MUP Presents New Series on Colonial Australian Culture
This new series will provide a vital window into the ‘other country’ of Australia’s all-too-proximate past.
Melbourne University Press (MUP) will release two books each year in a Colonial Australian Culture series. The series will be a library of innovative, accessible, scholarly work on colonialism in Australia.
Each title will offer an account of a particular cultural field: from fashion, art, architecture, gardening and literature to Indigenous resistance and colonial frontiers.
Colonial Australian Culture titles will be short monographs of approximately 45,000 words.
This new library will provide a vital window into the ‘other country’ of Australia’s all-too-proximate past.
