New tastemakers and Australia’s post-digital literary culture: The book as concept investigates the impact of digital technologies on patterns of taste-making in Australian literary culture. The project examines how engagements with digital publishing and social networking platforms have changed the ways in which Australian literature is produced, distributed and consumed, and addresses the questions of what this means for the future of Australian literature. This seminar presents their book-to-date, chapter-by-chapter on transnational public affairs nonfiction, literary celebrity, the use of big data by publishers, publishers’ networks and marketing practices, and the relationship between literary prizes and social media.
This panel discussion brings together five leading experts in their respective fields, to discuss.

The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) emerged out of community-level meetings and Indigenous advocacy movements in the 1970s to eventually become the global standard on Indigenous-state relationships as well as Indigenous-settler relations. Passed by the UN General Assembly in 2007, UNDRIP represents the minimum standard of Indigenous human rights, and its 46 articles provide guidance on Indigenous-settler relationality. However, the record of actual implementation of Indigenous human rights, in practice, has been mixed in the years since 2007. This presentation will explore the various pathways to implementation currently being undertaken at different levels of governance around the world with special attention paid to the legislative experiment underway in Canada, and especially in the province of British Columbia.
This event will be lived captioned.
