Australian Media and the Politics of Belonging
506 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne
Join us for the launch of Australian Media and the Politics of Belonging, a new edited collection that explores ideas of belonging in contemporary Australia.
The book was edited by Dr David Nolan (School of Culture and Communication), Professor Karen Farquharson (School of Social and Political Sciences) and Professor Timothy Marjoribanks (Swinburne University). It will be launched by lawyer, advocate and writer Nyadol Nyuon.
The authors bring together research that proposes conceptual and historical frameworks for understanding the meaning of belonging in the Australian context. It is a significant theoretical resource as well as a much-needed update on work in this area.
Australian Media and the Politics of Belonging also provides an intervention that engages with key contemporary issues, questions and problems around the politics of belonging that are relevant not only to academic debate, but also to contemporary policy development and media and popular discussion.
