Migrations And Mediations: The Emergence Of Southeast Asian Diaspora Writers In Australia 1972-2007
|Author||Jose wendell P. Capili|
"Remarkable for its steady grasp of a unifying vision encompassing literary production by writers coming from disparate cultures and historical backgrounds, and establishing their significance as a factor in the construction of the contemporary cultural identity of Australia …Capili demonstrates meticulous scholarship notable for its thoroughness and unerring sense of relevance … an important contribution to the narrative of Australia’s cultural history …” – Emeritus Professor Bienvenido Lumbera, University of the Philippines, National Artist for Literature and Magsaysay Awardee
“… An important contribution to both Australian and Filipino literary scholarship. Both Australians and Filipinos have mainly looked at the United States or the United Kingdom for their literary interests. Here is a book that deals with the works of Southeast Asians in Australia and their attempts to translate their experiences into the broader Australian worldview. It is important to know how Australia is opening itself to the variegated experiences of its migrant writers. It is also important for Filipinos to look beyond their American lenses and realize that their national and regional compatriots are engaging in new literary terrains.” – Dr. Raul Pertierra, University of New South Wales
“… important and timely: on one hand, identifying and documenting the various factors that have limited, shaped and facilitated the development of Southeast Asian Diaspora writers in Australia; on the other, demonstrating the significant contribution these writers have made to the advancement of multiculturalism in Australia … Capili’s main contribution to the field lies in the way he distinguishes and documents the various programs, institutions, mentors, awards, and communities that have contributed to the growth of Southeast Asian diasporic writing in Australia …” – Professor Michael Pinches, University of Western Australia
