Giving this Country a Memory:


This book has been a long time in the making. The interviews were conducted over many years, the earliest being the interview with Doris Pilkington Garimara in 2005. During the time it took me to complete the book, its methodology has undergone continuous reconfigurations in response to my ongoing conversations with indigenous and non-indigenous writers and colleagues. This book is thus the product of a collaborative effort. It has also been supported in numerous ways by the University of New South Wales (UNSW). I gratefully acknowledge the faculty of Arts & Social Sciences at UNSW and the School of the Arts & Media for supporting its various stages of research with SSP and SRC funding. My thanks go to Andrew Schultz and Elizabeth McMahon and the School Research Committee for their part in facilitating an environment at UNSW which has enabled me to work on this research, and to my colleagues in the faculty of Arts and Social Sciences and the School of the Arts & Media. I’d particularly like to thank Bill Ashcroft for his generosity and advice and Michael Pusey for his mentorship and friendship. Warm thanks also to Cathy Cole, Gillian Whitlock, Kay Schaffer, Philip Morrissey, David Carter, Elizabeth Webby, and Paul Sharrad for advice over the years. And to Maarten Renes, Martina Horakova, Oliver Haag, Jeanine Leane, Debra Dudek, Stephen Muecke,
