Summary
'Writing Home' argues that frontier no longer adequately describes Central Australia, and the Aboriginal songlines long trivialised by settler Australians' use of the pejorative walkabouts are potentially an important contributor to Australian discourses of hybridity, settler belonging and home. Drawing on anthropology, cultural theory, journalism, politics and philosophy, the work traces perceptions of Australian place and space through six re-counted walking journeys of the Red Centre. The result is something of a biography of the songlines, and a journalism and literary criticism of their cultural and political fracture under European settlement.--
