Book's Blurb
'This book offers a comprehensive and critical analysis of the tropes employedin the categorization of international students living and studying inAustralia. Establishing the position of migrant students as ’subjects of theborder’, the author employs various models of emotion in an analysis of theways in which public debates on migration and education in Australia haveproblematised international students as an object of national compassion orresentment in relation to other national concerns at the time, such as the country’splace in the Asia-Pacific region, the integrity of its borders and the relativecompetitiveness of its economy.

Applying an innovative methodology, which combines the breadth of a diachronicstudy with the depth afforded by the close analysis of a diverse range of casestudies – including the protests staged by Indian international studentsagainst a spate of violent attacks, which led to their labelling as ‘softtargets’ in national discourses – Australia’s New Migrants constitutes animportant contribution to our understanding of the ways in which emotions shapenational collectives’ orientation towards others. As such, it will appeal toscholars of sociology, cultural studies and education with interests inmigration, race and emotion.'

The Spaces of Complicity in
Mid-20th-century U.S. Literature
Will Norman

When Tuesday, 27 March, 3:30pm - 5pm
Where Cinema 327, Robert Webster Building, UNSW Sydney

This paper focuses on the difficulty of representing complicity in the United States in the 1940s and 50s. The word complicity is derived from the Latincomplicare, meaning to fold together, and in its modern sense tends to designate the way individuals become entangled in harmful systems over which they have little or no control. Complicity, I argue, was a pressing concern for intellectuals and writers in mid-century America, yet its structure and experience posed a particular kind of challenge to representation in language.  Taking examples from Theodor Adorno?s Minima Moralia, and short stories by Mary McCarthy and Vladimir Nabokov, I show how complicit relationships become graspable in mid-century writing through the way that individuals experience social spaces ? the train compartment, the restaurant, and the bourgeois salon.


Will Norman is a Reader in American Literature and Culture at the University of Kent, where he is Director of the Centre for American Studies. He has been a Fulbright Research Fellow at Yale University and is currently a Visiting Fellow at the University of Sydney. His book publications include Nabokov, History and the Texture of Time (Routledge, 2012) and Transatlantic Aliens: Modernism, Exile and Culture in Midcentury America (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2016), as well as various articles on hardboiled style, the sociology of crime fiction and the culture industry in mid-century America. He is currently working on an intellectual and literary history of complicity in the United States since 1945.
