The Writing & Society Research Centre at Western Sydney University warmly invites you to
Michael Farrell on Australian Unsettlement: A Poetics Index
Friday 16 October
Building 3.G.55, Bankstown Campus
Western Sydney University
Drawing on his just published scholarly book, Writing Australian Unsettlement: Modes of Poetic Invention 1796-1945, Dr Michael Farrell demonstrates a range of poetics employed by various Australian writers since (un)settlement: including Ned Kelly, Bennelong, a Chinese gold miner, settler women, drovers and even canonical poets. Topics may include collage, punctuation, assemblage, drawings, repetition, rhyme, style, sentences and typography.
Dr Michael Farrell has a PhD from the University of Melbourne. He has published three books of poetry with Giramondo: a raiders guide, open sesame and, most recently, Cocky's Joy.
Our seminars are free and open to visitors from outside the university. If you want to come along to one of our seminars simply RSVP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating which seminar you wish to attend.
