MILLER, T., 2015. Dependencia meets gentle nationalism. Cultural Studies, 29(4), pp. 515-26.
The dominant historiography of Australian cultural studies assumes that the southeast
of the country, where its major population centres are located, is crucial to the
field’s formation. That account also problematizes nationalism. This article offers a
counter-narrative, based in dependencia theory. It argues for the centrality to
cultural studies of two peripheral cities in Australia where Graeme Turner made his
mark, and of his particular contribution, ‘gentle nationalism’.
