The Australia to Come: Exploring nineteenth-century visions of Australia's future [presentation slides]
presentationposted on 12.07.2018, 02:08 by Zachary Kendal
What kinds of futures did nineteenth-century Australian writers imagine? From stories looking forward to better, utopian societies, to those warning against dark, dystopian turns, this body of literature engages with a broad range of contemporary Australian issues. Join Zachary Kendal, a librarian in Rare Books at Monash University, as he explores the diversity, and strangeness, of these speculative fictions.
Presented on Tuesday 3 July 2018 at the Monash Conference Centre as part of Melbourne Rare Book Week.
