A collection of essays addressing questions like:
- What role should Australian literature play in the school curriculum?
- What principles should guide our selection of Australian texts?
- To what extent should concepts of the nation and a national identity frame the study of Australian writing?
- What do we imagine Australian literature to be?
- How do English teachers go about engaging their students in reading Australian texts?
This volume brings together teachers, teacher educators, creative writers and literary scholars in a joint inquiry that takes a fresh look at what it means to teach Australian literature. The immediate occasion for the publication of these essays is the implementation of The Australian Curriculum: English, which several contributors subject to critical scrutiny.
