AAALS conference outcomes

The recently concluded AAALS conference in Washington DC was an outstanding one, full of enlivening papers. Andrew McCann's keynote on biopolitics and the metrocolonial in nineteenth century Australia was both theoretically challenging and lucid in its challenging insights, and we were very happy to have six graduate student papers, including Shinjini Chattopadhyay of Jadavpur University who won the Wertheim prize with her paper on Judith Wright.

The next conference will be in Portland, Oregon, in April of 2014. The board gave preliminary approval to a new publishing arrangement for Antipodes, of which more hopefully later.
