To CSAA members,


This is a call to those members who currently teach Australian
literature and film in any context (Cultural Studies, Literary Studies,
Communication). We'd like to draw your attention to our ALTC funded
project, 'Teaching Australian Literature Survey', and invite your
participation on the website's Discussion Forum


We are interested in hearing about your teaching experiences and
methodologies, the texts that you teach, student responses, theoretical
frameworks, and any suggestions you may have for the survey. A survey
questionnaire will also be available in the following weeks.


More specific details from the AustLit newsletter are below.
