May and June 2014 have been busy months for Centre for the Book researchers, who have been speaking with the media about the current research projects.
In May, Dr Melinda Harvey published a major essay in the Sydney Review of Books on the work of Renata Adler, whose novels have been republished as New York Review of Books Classics.
Dr Simone Murray was on Radio National’s ‘Books and Arts Daily’ in June discussing the rise of online literary criticism.
Also in June, Dr Anna Poletti was interviewed for an article in the Age, leading up to the State Library of Victoria’s zine fair ‘Tonerpalooza’, where she discussed her recent research into zines about suicide.
