Outside the mainstream of literary production, ethnic minority writings can be percieved either as "framing" it or as constituting a "dangerous supplement". What happens to Australian literature when it is supplemented "dangerously" by a heterogeneous collection of writings variously described as "migrant", "ethnic minority" or "multicultural"? Is ethnic difference as significant in the critical interpretation of texts as gender and social class are now recognized to be? Might the discourses of multi-culturalism be deployed strategically to construct a counter-public sphere? In trying to answer these questions, Professor Gunew draws not only on feminist, post-structural and post-colonial criticism, but also on comparative multi-cultural studies, recent critiques of English studies as an imperial apparatus, and the deconstruction of "universal" notions of culture.
