WrICE

WrICE (Writers Immersion and Cultural Exchange) is a multi-year research program which uses a collaborative residency methodology to analyse and develop innovative creative practices to connect writers and evolve transnational literary cultures. 

The program looks at questions of ethical encounter and exchange, asking how might writers be supported to develop intercultural and international relationships that augment and transform their creative practices, and produce networks of cooperation. Since 2014, the focus of WrICE has been on the Asia-Pacific region, working with partners including SingLit Station, the Jakarta Post and Copyright Agency. An ARC Discovery grant, Connecting Asia-Pacific Literary Cultures: Grounds for Encounter and Exchange, extends the program’s research from 2021-2024.

Researchers: Prof Francesca Rendle-Short, Prof David Carlin, Dr Michelle Aung Thin, Dr Sreedhevi Iyer, Dr Melody Ellis, Adjunct Professor Alvin Pang, Alison Barker.
