Abstract:

Practices of Proximity investigates the appropriation of the English
language taking place in the Australian literary contact zone between an
official 'white' Australia—the apparent owners of both the land and the
English language--and Australian Indigenous peoples. Rescuing the debate
from seemingly peripheral locations--the 'empty' Great Sandy Desert, or the
abject urban margin--it insists on the complex, ultimately open-ended and
multilateral ownership of the English language by all who inhabit the
intersubjective space of literature, rendering the inherited authority of
who 'owns' meaning problematical and ethically suspect. Documenting the
complex practices of bricolage and re-lexification of a multi-accentuated
Australia, the book invites readers to consider Australian Indigenous
literature as a space from which a re-routing of issues of co-habitation,
sovereignty, and being and becoming Australian might begin. This
interdisciplinary study of Australian Indigenous practices of appropriation
ranges from texts produced during the first encounters of Indigenous and
non-Indigenous peoples to the work of established and rising authors, such
as Oodgeroo Noonuccal, Jack Davis, Lionel Fogarty, Romaine Moreton and Kim
Scott.
