Out of Place (Gwalia)

Occasional essays on Australian regional communities and built environments in transition

Edited by: Philip Goldswain, Nicole Sully, William M. Taylor

This collection of essays explores historical, geographical, and cultural factors that contribute to our understanding of places and settings of Australian transient communities. From Gwalia and Kalgoorlie in Western Australia, Charters Towers in Queensland, Broken Hill in New South Wales, and Queenstown in Tasmania, the places provide opportunity to revisit sites of history from the different angles of architecture, landscape theory, social history, and visual arts. They also provide a springboard for thinking through the pressing issues of contemporary Australians and counterparts in other 'post-settler' societies. [Subject: Australian Studies, History]
