Desert Lines Conference

The Association for the Study of Australian Literature (ASAL) Conference 2018
will be hosted by CDU in Darwin from 8 - 9 February 2018.

This year's theme, Desert Lines: Interventions in the Borderlands of Australian Literature, will focus on creative writing beyond the boundaries of the canon and its mainstream readership. The conference theme draws on ASAL's identity as an association of scholars working in the fields of Australian literature, paying particular attention to writing beyond coastal centres and representing the outback
of the Australian imagination.
