This unit celebrates magazines as an important but often over-looked part of Australian print and digital culture. Starting with an overview of the history of print culture in Australia and the role of iconic magazines like the Bulletin and Women’s Weekly in constructing literary and popular culture, we then examine a cross-section of publications from ‘little’ literary magazines to fashion, gossip, sports, special-interest, custom and online magazines.
4x500wd discussion posts, 4x1000wd Wikipedia or blog entries.
