Reading in the Mallee: The Literary Past and Future of an Australian Region

Led by non/fictionLab’s Brigid Magner, with Emily Potter and Torika Bolatagici (Deakin University), this project aims to provide access to inclusive reading practices and spaces in the Victoria Mallee.

The research will generate a series of reader-centred events that enhance and diversify the literary infrastructure of the region and produce translatable knowledge. Through innovative methodologies the project invites Mallee readers, both past and present, to contribute knowledge to the first significant account of Mallee literary history, and to industry recommendations for future activities that support community diversity.

Researchers: Dr Brigid Magner, Associate Professor Emily Potter, Dr Torika Bolatagici
