Ruth Park

Guest editor Monique Rooney announces a special issue dedicated to the work and legacy of Ruth Park.

There exists no collection of scholarly essays on Ruth Park, whose award-winning novels include the Harp in the South (1948), Swords and Crowns and Rings (1976) and Playing Beatie Bow (1980).

This first special issue of ALS on Park aims to recognise both her literary achievements and her cultural significance. It aims to honour the diverse output of a writer who, in embracing the opportunity to work for newly emergent media industries, produced experimental, adventurous, and ingenious works that allow us to better see and understand transformations galvanising her century.

Essay submissions are now due.
