A society of country women and the functions of literary property

Lee, Christopher (1997) A society of country women and the functions of literary property. Journal of Australian Studies, 21 (52). pp. 138-147. ISSN 1444-3058


This article looks at the ways in which literary associations are utilised in the exemplary settler city of Toowoomba. It investigates the role that memorials, landscapes and literary societies play in developing a specific settler claim to place. It is particularly interested in the ways these cultural practises establish a specific public role for women in the cultivation of civic and national identity.
