Associate Professor Kylie Cardell & Associate Professor Rachel Robertson (Curtin)

This project explores and analyses the literary essay as a dynamic and evolving form in the twenty-first century. This ongoing project is creating new scholarly knowledge about the essay form, addressing major gaps in understanding in relation to the essay as it is practiced by Australian writers and about the essay as a digital, online genre.


Key outputs so far include special issues on the essay for TEXT (April 2017) and Life Writing (18.1, 2021) as well as the scholarly anthology Essays in Life Writing
