Scholars of Australian literature show the many ways that works from the colonial period to the present are postcolonial and can be read using postcolonial reading strategies. The topics include a postcolonial perspective of regional literature in Australia, negotiating postcolonial space in Janette Turner Hospital's Oyster, Andrew McGahan's The White Earth as a postcolonial novel, settler colonial biopolitics and postcolonial iterability in Kim Scott's Benang, indigenous feminist praxis and the politics of aboriginality in Alexis Wright's Plains of Promise and Melissa Lucashenko's Steam Pigs, and elaborate forgeries in Rodney Hall's The Second Bridegroom.
