Summary
Incisive readings of popular late 19th and early 20th century settler adventure romance unmask a deep-seated anxiety about the stability of concepts of whiteness and femininity in colonial Australia. It considers in detail Miles Franklin's My Brilliant Career and Catherine Martin's An Australian Girl; includes impact of colonisation on Aboriginal people; Aboriginal women; appropriation of Aboriginal materials and Dreaming stories; attitudes to Aboriginal people
