I am an interdisciplinary scholar trained in sociology and literature. My research experiments with writing, representation and performance to provide new ways of communicating academic knowledge in the humanities and the social sciences. I am interested in narrative, memory and place-making; in the slowness and inertia of cultures and subjects in times of great change; in the way individuals and communities dwell in, and through, the traumas that shape them, and in the role that artists and writers play as conduits for change. Psychoanalysis informs much of what I do, as does the troubled history of colonial race–relations.

My most recent work explores melancholia in Australian culture. A novella 'Méren: Me, My Brothers and I' (under review) re-imagines the myth of Saturn unfolding in a dystopic Australian colony; 'Melancholy Migrations: Travelling with the Negative' (forthcoming Giramondo) is a provocative study of the cultural politics of melancholia in Australia, and 'The Encyclopedia of Lost Things' (in progress) uses the affordances of life-writing to explore the trauma of past losses against a horizon of future crisis.

In another recent project I led a creative team to produce mobile app 'Traverses: J.M. Coetzee in the World', (Itunes) creating a new mode of literary criticism integrating, video, textual and photographic archival material and critical commentary in a highly accessible and interactive digital platform.

I welcome inquiries from Masters and Ph.D. candidates interested in: creative research, interdisciplinary scholarship, creative criticism, and trans-disciplinary poetics. I am happy to supervise theses in the fields of psychoanalysis, spatial poetics, trauma studies, colonial and post-colonial studies, race-relations and Australian literature and cultural studies.

My projects include: 

  • The Encyclopedia of Lost Things

"The Encyclopedia of Lost Things", a writing project, explores the affordances of life-writing to illuminate the inter-relationship between an intimate self (and its crises) and a larger collective condition/crisis. Interlacing theoretical, philosophical and psycho-social reflection with literary and personal narration it explores the interdependence of nature/culture in narrativising the self. Conceived as an "an experiment in attention" (Dillon 2018), it contributes to the “new essaysim” through the crafting of a work of 26 essays, each constructed around a letter of the alphabet and using digression, segue, and glissade to move fluidly between different registers (past present and future; intimate recollection; critical thought, self and nature/society).

Essays from “The Encyclopedia of Lost Things” have been published in Best Australian Essays (2017); long-listed for the Calibre Prize (2016) and recognized by the award of a Vermont Studio Writing Residence (2018); A Dartmouth College Visiting Fellowship, Leslie College of the Humanities( 2018); and an ANU Humanities Research Centre Fellowship, 2019)
 

  • Tjungu Pakani- Together We Rise

This project Tjungu Pakani- Together We Rise was a cross-cultural creative collaboration between the JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice, Sound Stream, The National Trust of Australia (Ayers House), the City of Adelaide, Renewal SA, Arts South Australia, The Centre for Aboriginal Studies in Music (University of Adelaide) and the Titjikala Women’s Choir. The project brought the Norther Territory Indigenous choir (Titjikala) to Adelaide for a series of workshops and exchanges with local musicians and artists culminating in an exhibition and concert featuring the choir singing songs from the Lutheran tradition in Pitjantjajara. The project was funded with a City of Adelaide Arts and Cultural – Community Programs & Events Grant 2018/19
 

  • Méren: Me, My Brothers and I

Méren: Me, My Brothers and I, is a fictional exploration of colonial melancholy extending and deepening understanding of the traumatic foundations of colonization. Melancholia has been understood as an affect underpinning dominant cultural fantasy particularly in relation to colonial and post-colonial racial imaginaries. Méren, Me My Brothers and I explores this traumatic/ affective legacy in the context of colonial South Australia imagined through the narrative conceit of Saturn as a colonial "founding father.” This poetic evocation deepens available ways of understanding key colonial tropes of the fantastic, the uncanny and the gothic reinterpreted though the long history of melancholy scholarship and textualisation. Méren: Me, My Brothers and I, is currently under-review with Giramondo Press.

    Extent: Forms part of a work of life-writing (in progress) comprised of 26 essays to be published under the title: The Encyclopedia of Lost Things
    ERA Research Statement - 2000 character limit: Research Background: In "The Great Derangement", (2017) Amitav Ghosh argues that novelists are complicit in ignoring climate change. Climate change, he writes, “is perhaps the most important question ever to confront culture in the broadest sense. […] Given what climate change portends for the future of the earth it should surely follow that this would be the principal preoccupation of writers the world over”. This essay is part of a larger work responding to his challenge to create works of literature that narrativise the uncanny and improbable events of the anthroposcene without recourse to the genres of sci-fi and fantasy
    Research Contribution: "The Bb Book", responds to this challenge by using the affordances of life writing to illuminate the inter- relationship between an intimate self (and its crises) and a larger collective condition/crisis. Interlacing theoretical, philosophical and psycho-social reflection with literary and personal narration it explores the interdependence of nature/culture in narrativising the self. The essay forms part of a larger work, "The Encyclopedia of Lost Things' in which crises in human meaning creation are narrativised within the context of an unravelling natural/social world
    Research Significance: "An experiment in attention" (Dillon 2018), this essay contributes to the new "essaysim' through its crafting of digression, segue, and glissade to explore self/nature and society in crisis

    Extent: Forms part of "Why Do Things Break" project. (see events/projects)
    ERA Research Statement - 2000 character limit: Research Background: "The Analyst's Laugh" is a short story that explores the dichotomy between the discourse and theory of psychoanalysis and its practice and practitioners. Focusing on the French practice of 'présentation de cas Clinique' (the presentations of (public) patients to audiences of trainee clinicians) it explores the way humour is used in this clinical context to maintain an imaginary boundary between clinician and the "cas". As the narrative unfolds this boundary is progressively dissolved.
    Research Contribution: The narrative interrogates the key Lacanian concept that hysterical neurosis can be understood "as a question (of mastery/authority etc). Through narrative juxtapositions of analyst/analysand it recasts 'the question' as core to all human meaning-making.
    Research Significance: uses the affordances of fiction to create a reflective/ reflexive exploration of psychoanalytic practice from the analyst- in -training's point of view.

    ERA Research Statement - 2000 character limit: Research Background: "Greyson" is an excerpt from the novella," Méren, Me, My Brothers and I", a fictional exploration of colonial melancholy. Melancholia has been understood as an affect underpinning dominant cultural fantasy particularly in relation to colonial and post-colonial racial imaginaries. Slavoz Zizek (2000) for example, argues that the melancholic lost object drives the mobilization of social and political fantasy and is the motivating cause for racial and nationalist projections and antipathies. Paul Gilroy(2006) has argued that in post-colonial melancholy, the loss of Empire as object motivates the nostalgic turn towards a white past. Ann Cheng(2000) has argued that white authority is sustained through the melancholy introjection of racial others and Australian art-historian Ian McClean (1999) has argued that in colonial discourse, melancholy performs the essential ideological work of colonial legitimation." Méren, Me My Brothers and I" explores these ideas in the context of colonial South Australia imagined through the narrative conceit of Saturn as a colonial "founding father".

    Research Contribution: A poetic evocation of colonial melancholia deepening available ways of understanding key colonial tropes of the fantastic, the uncanny and the gothic though the long history of melancholy scholarship and its aesthetic textualisation.

    Research Significance: Extends and deepens imaginative understanding of colonisation understood as a shared traumatic condition with an affective history and legacy.( Rose: 20014)
